A grandmother was in a mall with her 6-year-old grandson, and she met a friend. The woman looked down at the little boy and said, “Hey there, young man. What do you want for Christmas?” 

He looked up at her and said, “That’s not the question.” 

She said, “Well, well, well…” 

He continued, “I know the question, and I know the answer to the question.” 

She said, “Okay, what are they?” 

He replied, “The question is, ‘What will I give to Jesus this Christmas?’ And the answer is, ‘Me’.” 

That boy had it right. That’s all God wants. When we receive Jesus, we are to give Him ourselves in return. This is the supernatural transaction that enables us to celebrate fully and completely God’s gift at Christmas.

TODAY’S PRAYER FOCUS
Pray that God would help you give yourself fully to Jesus, as He has given Himself completely to you.
