Become the Gift…

Jesus was born dying…

Dying to LOVE you.

The wood of the manger…the wood of the cross.

Christ Child breaking open the virginal womb of Mary…Crucified Christ tearing the temple veil in two.

Jesus, God with a human face, born to die for LOVE of You!

When we receive the gift of the Christ Child, we receive the LOVE that came into the world to lay down His life for all.

Do we realize the true message of Christmas is about the Receiving?

The greatest gift we can give to our loved ones is to RECEIVE more deeply the LOVE that knows no bounds…

And LIVE that LOVE passionately.

Have you received the GIFT of Christmas?…Would you lay down your life for another?

May we all more deeply RECEIVE…

So we may all more deeply GIVE.

RECEIVE and become the GIFT.

Give Christmas away.

“For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor present things, nor future things, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature will be able to seperate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 8: 38-39

  1. Oh, I SO love this–and we do have to Receive the gift first, to be able to Be the gift! Thank you for passing the gift along–isn’t that the “fun-est” thing to do?! God bless you richly today, sister!
