If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

What Do You Get For the God Who Has Everything?

My husband preached a sermon Sunday morning entitled, "What Do You Get for the God Who Has Everything?" Quite a thought isn't it? I mean after all it is Jesus Birthday we're celebrating. Shouldn't He get a gift?

Happy Birthday Jesus!


Tracy suggested Hebrews 13:15-16 Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name. But do not forget to do good and to share, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased. (NKJV)

I think that's pretty good. Don't we want to give Him a gift that pleases Him? I know I do.

Matthew 5:16 says Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. (NKJV) So basically, our desire should be that in anything we do or say, that our friends and family will see Jesus in us.

Just curious what do you think of this? What Christmas Present do you plan to give Jesus this year?

  1. That is awesome. All He wants is our Heart...to serve Him & others. Trying to do more of that this season & carry it out through the next year.

  2. Giving him my heart seemed so simple back at 8 years old. Giving him my LIFE for the remainder of my life takes a bit more work! Great message, Cathy & HUBS!

  5. Isn't it overwhelming that our faith pleases Him? Our giving pleases Him? I can't even begin to fathom this kind of love...this kind of God. May all I say and do bring my Father joy!
