The Indescribable Gift

Salvation Army - Major Dale Murray

Christmas is the busiest and most rewarding time of the year for me. Each year I attend schools and receive from the students gifts they have donated for the Salvos to distribute to people in need in our community. The excitement in the eyes of the students as they hand over their gifts is inspirational and a blessing. For these students, they receive their joy by their giving and generosity.

However, despite how wonderful the children demonstrate the gift of generosity, nothing can match the ultimate demonstration of generosity in the story of the birth of Jesus that first Christmas 2000 years ago when God gave what Paul in 2 Corinthians 9:15 describes as the God’s “indescribable” gift, to all humankind.

The gift of Jesus gives us life. In John 10:10 we are reminded that Jesus came so we “we may have life, and have it to the full.” Through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus we each can live an abundant life and experience everlasting joy. We don’t always know what lies just around the corner in our lives, but we can be confident that God will always have our back when we have Jesus in our hearts.
