The Greatest Gift

02 October 2023

Philippians 2:13
‘For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases Him.’


This is a wonderful time of the year. A time when we celebrate the greatest gift of all. The gift of Jesus to the world. May this time be one of the greatest times in which you sense the presence of God in your homes. This greatest gift – JESUS – was a gift to each of us. As we give gifts to each other, let us remember who the greatest gift is.

Isaiah 9:6-7 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.  Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end.

Love has come for the world to know!
 
THE GREATEST GIFT TO MARY

 Luke 1:28-35 Gabriel appeared to her and said, “Congratulations, favored lady! The Lord is with you!” Confused and disturbed, Mary tried to think what the angel could mean. “Don’t be frightened, Mary,” the angel told her, “for God has decided to wonderfully bless you! Very soon now, you will become pregnant and have a baby boy, and you are to name him ‘Jesus.’ He shall be very great and shall be called the Son of God. And the Lord God shall give him the throne of his ancestor David. And he shall reign over Israel forever; his Kingdom shall never end!” Mary asked the angel, “But how can I have a baby? I am a virgin.” The angel replied, “The Holy Spirit shall come upon you, and the power of God shall overshadow you; so the baby born to you will be utterly holy—the Son of God.

Many had longed for what was about to happen to Mary. She was to be the one who would carry the Messiah. The Bible says a few things about Mary:
1. She was a favored lady.
2. The Lord was with her.
3. God had decided to wonderfully bless her.
The greatest gift to Mary was that she would be the one to carry the Messiah.
