John 3:16

John 3:16 For this is the way God loved the world: He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. (NET)

Oh Father God, as we listen to the words and music of Handel’s “Messiah” on this Christmas morning, we are overwhelmed by who You are! We are awed by the gift You have given to the world: Your perfect Son, Jesus! How can we, who are sinful humans ever wrap our minds around this amazing fact?

Over two thousand years ago, You offered the people of this world the Perfect Gift all wrapped up in the person of Jesus, Your perfect Son! Your incredible act of forgiveness that gifts us with perfect love forever in Your presence!

The gift is for now! The gift is for eternity!

Shout Halleluiah! You are King of Kings! You are Lord of Lords! You are Prince of Peace! Halleluiah! Praise to You, Oh Lord in Heaven on High!
