Chaplain's Corner: A Gift for Christmas

December 2019

I think we all like gifts, at least the majority of people do. We like to give gifts and to receive gifts. God likes to give gifts also and He told us that He has given us a gift. It says this in the Bible: A child is born to us! A Son is given to us! And He will be our ruler. He will be called "Wonderful Counselor," "Mighty God," "Eternal Father," "Prince of Peace." His royal power and peace will continue to grow.

It also says in the Bible, "For God so loved the world (that includes you and me) that He gave His one and only Son, so that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. " But, like any gift, it must be received. God will not force this gift upon us. It says this in the Bible, "To those who received Him (Jesus), to those who believed in His name, God gave the right to become a child of God. "

My prayer and deepest hope is that this season, when we celebrate the birth of Jesus, you will receive Jesus into your heart as a gift from God.

If you have never received Jesus, here is a simple prayer: Lord Jesus, I know that I have tried to live my life without you. I ask you to forgive me for this and to come and live in my heart and direct my life from this point on. I receive you as a gift from God.

To go further in depth about this gift, go to and search "The Gift." There are many resources there to help you with this or other concerns or questions.
