The Greatest Gift of All, Jesus.
By. Meline Ngo
When each one of us was born, we each have a gift on our side. It is for us to discover in time and see what is inside that box. Because this gift is so special, we personally have to realize that we have this gift with us all this time and that perfect time to open comes to us in different ways, in different time. No one else can open it for us, coz each gift is personalized.
Just like any gift, we feel excited to open. And when we see what’s inside, that is the only time when that something within us tells ourselves how we want to take the gift. Sometimes it takes awhile to understand and recognize what is it? Some might be surprise and believe in it on an instant, others may feel so overwhelm and feel guilt for receiving such a very special gift and reject it at the moment and wait a little while to fully acknowledge the gift.
But this gift, is so special that the Holy Spirit must touch our heart to enable to assume ownership of this priceless possession….because inside this gift is Jesus.
Have you opened you gift? How unique is our gift?
Jesus as one of us was born by Mary is unique. No father that would link Him to Adam and Eve. But have a mother Mary with the blood line of Abraham son of David. Jesus has performed miracles during His life here on earth like waking up the dead like His good friend Lazarus, it is not Jesus that gave life to Lazarus but the Holy Spirit came to rise up Lazarus. Jesus himself too was resurrected from the death.
Who is really Jesus? He is the Christ, the “Anointed One,” or the “Messiah.” The name “Jesus” is derived from the Hebrew-Aramaic word “Yeshua,” meaning “Yahweh [the Lord] is salvation.” The name “Christ” is actually a title for Jesus. It comes from the Greek word “Christos,” meaning “the Anointed One,” or “Messiah” in Hebrew.
Jesus Christ was crucified and He resurrected three days after his death, appeared to His disciples, and then ascended into heaven. His life and death provided the atoning sacrifice for our sins. We were separated from God because of Adam’s sin, but reconciled back to God through Jesus Christ’s Death and Resurrection. He restored our fellowship with God, and reopened our way to eternal life.
However difficult to understand; Jesus is God, or Immanuel, “God with us.” Jesus Christ has always existed and has always been God, and He was not only fully God, but fully man. Jesus was sent human so he could identify with our weaknesses and struggles, and most importantly so that He can die to redeem us for our sins.
Thus, If you don’t believe in the Holy Trinity’, there is no room for you in the bible. Because the Bible talks about the Father sending His Son Only Begotten Jesus to the world Through the Holy Spirit and tells all about how He lived on earth and showed miracles and humbly calling and thanking His Father every time His prayer is heard.
We must received Jesus as our Savior and Lord, and then we shall know and experience His love which is the greatest gift that anyone can have, and we can achieve this through faith and entrusting ourselves entirely to Him. Let Christ come into our life and forgive our sins and let Him mould us to be what He wants us to be.
Believe and pray, we can receive God’s gift to us with all our heart, with faith. Because He is Jesus, let Him touch your life. He is the greatest gift of all.
