There is this Christmas song that is title: “The Gift Goes On”. We used to sing it every Christmas in our Church Annual Christmas Banquet. We stopped singing it because of other entertainment features that were brought up. But truly “The Gift Goes On” never ceases. No matter where you live, what culture you have, your social status; all of us have a part of this Gift.
The Apostle Paul says in 2 Corinthians 9:15 “15 Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!” This gift has continued going for almost 2000 years. Just as a child who gets excited with a gift, a teenager who acts as if he doesn’t care but wants to be part of it or an adult that one way or another finds the way to share with family gifts. This indescribable gift is not an object nor finance, he is a human being. But not just any man, he is the begotten Son of God. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believe in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.
This gift goes on! It’s one that will give you peace in midst of trails and tribulation; will give you strength when life gives you only despair and will give you a light to follow when you are surrounded by darkness. It will continue going forward as you share this gift with those that need a hand, with those that need a smile, with those that need that peace of mind and with those that have that gift but have failed to continue passing it on.
The gift goes on, as you share not about what you are going to buy to give away or what you expect for this coming Christmas but the true message of Christmas. Mat 1:21 “21 she will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” Share this gift: the forgiveness of sin, found in this gift, the Son of God, the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
