Sunday Reflection: A Gift For The World

As Christians, we have the best reason to celebrate joyfully at Christmas: we were given the eternally perfect gift of Christ

To get the most out of this devotion, set aside time to read the Scripture referenced throughout.

Another busy Christmas season is upon us, and the next few weeks will be overflowing with parties, gifts, and good cheer. However, this time is especially meaningful for Christians, who recognize the reason for such joy: Our Savior came to rescue us from sin and death, and He will come again in glory to make all things new (Matt. 1:21; Revelation 21:4-5).

Thanks to Christ, the One who has overcome the world, we can experience true peace. And this blessing will continue into eternity, where we will dwell forever with our heavenly Father (John 16:33; 2 Pet. 1:10-11). As members of the Christian community, we should celebrate this truth every day and share it with those around us. The gladness that binds us together in unity is our gift to the world, and when it is evident, people can’t help but be drawn in.

Think about it

  •  Do you think of the kingdom of God primarily as a present reality or a future inheritance? How does that view shape your understanding of Christian community?
