Not Tinsel But Timeless Truths
John 14:6 (KJB) Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
In this Christmas season, amid wrapped presents, decorated trees, and tinsel; don’t lose focus and fail to give your family the opportunity for receiving the greatest gift ever, the gospel message of Jesus Christ. This lasting gift is only available through personally knowing God. It does not come as a wrapped present found under a world-based Christmas tree.
Nor does possession of eternal life come through any person or another world-based way for only Jesus Christ rose again, and He, as this verse above presents, alone is the way, The Truth, and the life. The world tries to claim that there are many fruitful avenues to God, such as good works, morals, meditation, Eastern religions, and such, but these alternate avenues only lead to certain death and eternal spiritual ruin.
God’s gift is a timeless gift that keeps on giving in this world and for all eternity. It has no limits, expiration date, shelf life, or frame of usefulness; instead, it is an eternal gift that keeps on giving without regard to time and place. God’s supernatural nature and character cannot be boxed in with any such limitations we are familiar with at work in this world.
Tinsel shines in the moment, Christmas presents rust and fade, but the gift of God remains forever!
