“…since God has shown us great mercy, I beg you to offer your lives
as a living sacrifice to him. Your offering must be only for God
and pleasing to him, which is the spiritual way for you to worship.”
Romans 12:1 NCV

I’ve made my Christmas list. How about you? Some people are super easy to shop for. For others, I have no idea where to start. Do you have people like that on your list? Either they are really picky or it seems they have everything they could want or need.

What about God? How do we begin to give to our Lord and Savior? He’s the Creator of everything. He owns everything. What could we possibly have to offer?

God gave us the greatest gift ever… His Son. Jesus was blameless, without sin. He was the only one Who could take the sins of the world, Who could restore this fallen planet, and give us the opportunity for everlasting life.

There was no sacrifice pure enough; there was no sacrifice great enough. Nothing would do except the precious blood of Jesus that was shed on Calvary for you and me. He paid the price so that we could be forgiven, have abundant life on this earth and live eternally with God. You see, His grace is unmerited. There’s nothing you can do to earn it.

He has the whole world in His hands, so what could He want from us? This Christmas and every day, He wants your attention, your heart, your thoughts. He wants to hear you praise Him. He wants your thankfulness for what He’s given, not just endless requests for more.

Commit to set uninterrupted time for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Let Him know how much He means to you; how your hope, your peace comes from Him. He has poured out His favor on you. Let’s pour out our everything on the God who gave us everything.
