Picture the situation of a delighted child eagerly opening an expensive Christmas present carefully chosen by a loving parent. Then, after his initial delight, is content just to play with the box and wrapping! Something else has caught his attention and occupied his young thoughts. Well, let's think about that for a moment.
God has offered to each person the most amazing, ultimate gift. It is the gift that is essential to life from every perspective. It is the power to change the control of your life and destiny. It is sought by everyone, consciously or unconsciously, but could never be obtained unless it is given by the loving Creator. It is a gift that is meant for you, designed for you, and purposes for you. It's the answer for your hungry soul. It satisfies all your deep longings and makes sense of everything. Yes, it's the ultimate gift. This is the "unspeakable" gift of God for you personally... "That in the ages to come he might show the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Jesus Christ. For by grace are Ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God." (Ephesians 2:7, 8)
Yet, sadly, it is not unusual to have our attention diverted from the gift itself to something much less, resulting in a short burst of cheer but missing lasting joy and the powerful grace of God in our daily lives. Moment by moment, His matchless grace will satisfy your deepest desires. What a priceless gift he has for you. That is why the Apostle Paul proclaims, "Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift." Jesus Christ satisfies and supplies everything that we were created for. He gives us security, peace, contentment, reconciliation with God. So don't dwell on something less or mess around with the wrapping when you have His immeasurable gift.
During this busy Christmas season let's focus on the main message - God's priceless gift in Jesus Christ. Then help others to see. "Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift."
May this Christmas and the coming new year of 2017 be blessed and fruitful.

Christmas day is a very special day for us at Gospel Baptist Church. It reminds us that we are all here for a reason, but one particular person, Jesus (God's one and only Son) was born into this earth for the greatest reason of all - to save us from our sins.
No ordinary baby, no ordinary birth, no ordinary reason. Worth celebrating!
We would love to have that chance to meet you on this special day: Sunday 25th December at 9:00 AM.
