Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 21 December 2019

The Best Gift

“Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.” (John 4:10)

Today's Morsel:  For the past few weeks, I've been seeing the mailman drop boxes at my door.  I know I haven't ordered anything, and so I'm assuming that my dear children are starting to send gifts for Christmas to their loving Dad/Grandpa/Papa/Poppie.  James tells us that every good gift and perfect gift is from above and cometh down from the father of lights.  When God robed Himself in flesh and came to the earth to save mankind, He was the greatest gift.  Paul, writing to the church at Corinth, told them to covet earnestly the best gift.   And that gift was love because God is love (1 John 4:8).  The best gift is love, and the greatest gift is the Holy Ghost.  When we allow God's love to reign within us, and we show forth that love to others, we are displaying the best gift.  When we allow the Holy Ghost to lead and guide us, we are displaying the greatest gift.  You can't put a price tag on the gifts from God.  No amount of money can buy them.  His gifts are free, and they are the best and greatest.  How many of them do you want today?   They are all free; get as many of them as you want.

Sing:  So, have a super-duper Christmas with Jesus this year, super-duper Christmas spreading good cheer; if you are down, your frown will soon disappear; so have a super-duper Christmas with Jesus this year.

Thought for today: What would you like for Christmas?
