The Greatest Gift
The Greatest Gift: Jesus Christ
When God created Adam and Eve, He had high hopes for this couple. There was only one rule in the Garden of Eden: Do not eat from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. The first Adam and Eve had an amazing relationship with God, long walks in the cool of the morning with a glorious sunrise and an intimate conversation and stroll in the evening. This was all destroyed when Satan deceived Eve. At that time, the balance of the world was upset. Adam and Eve died spiritually that day. God intervenes and the redemption plan begins.
Jesse is the father to King David, the line in which Jesus will be born. Jesus is the second Adam. Jesus is the only other person that was born physically and spiritually alive. The journey from the foretelling of Jesus to His birth is a journey we will take together. I will be reading and sharing for The Greatest Gift.
In that day the heir to David’s throne will be a banner of salvation to all the world. The nations will rally to Him, and the land where he lives will be a glorious place. Isaiah 11:10
Will you slow down with me and savor the next twenty-four days as we light our candles, or hang ornaments on the tree to symbolize this time of seeking more of Jesus?
If you have the book, The Greatest Gift, some questions to ponder.
In what ways do you feel like a lifeless stump, longing for a tender shoot of hope?
What are you waiting for, yearning for this season?
Where can you see new life coming in what you may have considered dead?
Father God thank you for the Greatest Gift. Jesus. Help me to plant seeds of kindness.
