2 Gifts Wrapped Up in Love If asked why we give gifts at Christmas, many will point to the wise men who brought the first Christmas gifts to the infant, Jesus, of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. That is true. They set an example which we still follow today. We shop and give tangible gifts to our loved ones as expressions of our love. Those gifts cost us something of value, our money and our time. As I was reading again that familiar narrative from Matthew, the foundational gift brought to the infant Jesus was not the offerings of their priceless treasures, it was the gift of themselves. The wise men told King Herod: we have come to worship him. (vs. 2) They traveled hundreds of miles over weeks of time not to unload their camels, but to offer their love, devotion, service, respect to this newborn king, Jesus. The giving of gifts was the physical expression of their inward devotion. Worship is not just something we do on Sundays where God is ritualistically praised. Our lives are to be expressions of worship to God. A hymn or spiritual song, a prayer, a sermon, an offering, communion, baptism, are all ritualistic expressions of our devotion to God. Without the proper motivation, these rituals are hollow expressions. The wise men s gifts had significance because they were giving of themselves in worship, their ultimate gift. God is the ultimate giver, the giver of all gifts, especially the Son of God who gave of himself to take away the sins of the world. The wise men gave not to get something in return but to worship following the precedent of God, himself. We, too, give at Christmas and throughout the year, responding out of appreciation to the gift of salvation we have received. We give as an act of worship. This Advent/Christmas season we are going to worship as a congregation giving Gifts that Won t Break. We are talking about our motivation, our hearts. As you come, you will be encouraged to experience God s unbreakable gifts of hope, love, joy, peace, culminating in God s greatest gift, Jesus Christ. Come join us on this Advent adventure, exploring the spirit of Christmas! See ya Sunday, Pastor Greg Sunday Worship 8:15 and 10:30 am Sunday School 9:30 am Preaching Schedule 3 rd The Gift of Hope Matthew 1;18-20 ANGEL: call Him Jesus for He will save his people from their sins. (vs.21) Hope is knowing God will do what He promises. Do you give others hope by keeping your promises? 10 th The Gift of Love Luke 1;46-55 MARY: For he took notice of His lowly servant girl. (vs. 48) God loved Mary by choosing her to bear His son. Who are you making a conscious choice to love? 17th The Gift of Joy Matthew 1:22-25 JOSEPH: and they will call him, Immanuel, which means God is with us. (vs. 23) Joseph embraced the promise to name Jesus, God with us, while facing great difficulties. Are you bringing joy to someone s difficulties by offering the presence of Christ? 24 th (morning) The Gift of Peace Luke 2:8-20 SHEPHERDS: Glory to God in the highest heaven, and peace on earth to those in whom God is pleased. (vs. 14) Peace is given to the whole of earth. How are you bringing the gift of peace to situations of tension and conflict? 24 th (evening) The Gift of Christ Luke 2:1-7 JESUS:..she gave birth to her first child, a son. (vs. 7) As Wesley reminded his pastors, the greatest gift we can give is to offer them Christ.
