The one gift I want,
The one gift I can’t see,
But I know it is Jesus,
And not the Christmas tree.
It isn’t the packages,
And ribbons silky and bright.
It is all about our Savior,
And that first Christmas night.
This gift I don’t understand.
I don’t know this kind of love.
The Son of God was given,
And sent to us from above.
The perpetual gift of Jesus,
Will guide us every day.
We need to use this gift,
Offering thanksgiving as we pray.
This gift will bring much comfort.
It can offer total peace.
He will always keep His promises,
And His grace will be released.
He is not a genie in a bottle,
All about making wishes on earth.
It is about being made brand new,
And given a special re-birth.
This gift I cannot see,
But the One I have is here,
Coming from God’s presence.
His Spirit is always near.
I thank God for the Gift.
It is a gift like no other.
I have been adopted in The Family.
Jesus is my new brother.
A gift like this cannot be kept.
It must be shared every day.
Love is only a gift,
If it is given away.
6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
This prophesy was fulfilled with the birth of Jesus, the Savior of the world. Jesus brought us the gift of total love and brought us the New Testament and the law of love. We are to love God and to love our neighbor as ourselves. We are to show others the love that God showed us by sacrificing His only Son so that we could live eternally with Him in heaven and not be condemned to hell with Satan.
