“The Son of God came so we could recognise and understand the truth of God - what a gift! ... Jesus is both true God and real life.” 1 John 5:20 (Message)
Have you ever received a Christmas gift, that disappointed you?
In his letter, John describes the coming of Jesus (that we celebrate at Christmas) as a “gift”.
And what a gift!
This gift from God is personal, practical and useful.
This gift won’t break. In fact, it will last forever.
And … it will change our lives. It’s a gift that keeps on giving.
This gift from God helps us to lose our loneliness, get a new start, discover our true identity, and receive strength to keep going.
