Let me share with you the following poem by Georgia Knick Horne—“The Greatest Gift”.
(see 2 Corinthians 9:15)
You ask what I’m wanting for Christmas, And since this great Gift I’ve accepted
What gift I would like to acquire- To me God has given, beside,
A gift that would thrill my whole being A life never ending, eternal;
And satisfy every desire. A promise with Him to abide.
Well, just such a Gift has already He gives sweetest peace ‘mid life’s conflict,
Been given-and it is my own; In days filled with peril and fear;
For no greater gift could be given Gives joy day by day in His service;
And no greater love could be shown In sorrow gives comfort and cheer.
Then when God the Father gave Jesus, His presence is with me each moment;
His only, His well-belov’d Son, He satisfies fully my needs,
To suffer in my place on Calv’ry, Gives grace for each test, bears my burdens;
To pay for the sins I had done. And gently my footsteps He Leads.
O Gift over all gifts transcending! What gift could I ask, then, beside Him?
O Gift dear and precious, divine! Could man such a Gift e’er afford?
Unspeakable Gift God has given Oh, no! God in mercy has given
To all who believe-and He’s mine! The greatest Gift-Jesus my Lord!
A Merry Christ-Centered Christmas to you all.
Mrs. Carroll and I wish each of you a blessed and rejoicing Christmas season as we all praise and thank the Heavenly Father for sending Jesus to die for our Salvation (John 3:16).
