What Will You Give Jesus this Christmas?
By Pastor Jon Haakana

Christmas is all about Jesus! And, since we celebrate His birthday at Christmas, I was wondering, "What does Jesus want us to give Him for His birthday?" Jesus has given us the greatest gift when he was born—salvation. So what does the greatest giver want to receive from us? What gifts could we give Him that would bring Him joy and happiness? Let’s make a list of some of these gifts.

The first gift I believe we should give Jesus for His birthday this year is OURSELVES. We really haven’t given Him anything until we give Him ourselves. Have you given yourself to Jesus? You may have prayed, and attended worship, and given monetary donations to the church, but have you done the most important thing? Do you think about Jesus when you get up and go to bed? Have you given yourself to Jesus?

Secondly, I believe that Jesus wants us to give Him OUR HEARTS. That means He wants to be first in our lives. “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.” (Deuteronomy 6:5)
