John 3 (16) For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (17) For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (18) He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in
the name of the only begotten Son of God. KJV

The Gift He Gave

What is the worth of a goodly gift and the value to behold?
Not in the material it is made of, nor in the effort to be sold.
Nor is there price to be paid for the thoughtfulness of the giver,
Not a currency for the joy of the one to whom it was delivered.

When gifts are given and then received of earthly things as these,
That rust, break, and gather dust, soon forgotten or lost to thieves,
Things we thought would please only cause us to search for more,
Never satisfying our heart of hearts, nor filling our needs therefore.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
The gifts that are of true value, more precious than silver and gold,
Are given from God's Heaven above and cannot be bought nor sold.
The Gift He gave had no honor or hope, no beauty, nor fine appeal,
His Gift is for the lowly and for the hearts who seek Heavenly zeal.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
For once He came from Glory, descending down to this earth's dust,
Just a babe, then a child grown to manhood, He was so like one of us.
Only God could offer His eternal Gift as He promised that He could,
Only God could become a Man to die upon that cross of bloody wood.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
For once He died of broken heart, a grief so deep His Soul was torn,
His Spirit paid the redemptive price for our sins that God did mourn.
For once He conquered death's deep grip, and dust and grave reviled,
The Father's will the Son obeyed, the Spirit's power of life revealed!
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
His Gift of Forgiveness: He paid the price that sin demanded
His Gift of Redemption: He paid the price that God commanded
His Gift of Eternal Life: He gives to those believing like Thomas
His Gift of Holy Glory: He gives to those who trust His Promise!
