God's Greatest Gift To All Humanity

Updated on December 23, 2010

"...Behold, a virgin shall conceive,and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel."( Isaiah 7:14 )

" For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful,Counselor, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end,..."( Isaiah 9:6,7 )

" And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shall call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins...
...Behold a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us." ( Matthew 1:21,23 )

" 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." ( John 3:16 )

" ...I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." ( John 10:10 )

" I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness." ( John 12:46 )

" Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.
And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die..." ( John 11:25-26 )

" And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifested in the flesh..." ( 1 Timothy 3:16 )

" And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses." ( Acts 13:39 )

There are different kind of gifts. Every gift always bring excitement to whosoever receives such a gift. The one gift that always brings excitement to humans at every point in time is the gift of life; the birth of a new child. The joy of this new addition to humanity is always celebrated by many all over the world in different ways.
The same way humans celebrate the gift of the birth of a child, so also the scriptures record the celebration of the birth of a special child two thousand years ago ( Luke 2:8-14, note verses 13 & 14 ).
This celebration by the heavenly host was to announce the arrival of the GIFT that would make a difference in the life of all humanity for all time. This is God's greatest gift to all: JESUS CHRIST.

A careful study of the scriptural texts quoted above will give anyone who cares to know an understanding of God's greatest gift and the intended purpose for which this gift was given.
The reason God gave this gift is to make available to all humanity everything that God is, and everything that God has- His love, His life, His goodness and mercy, His power, and His other resources. The giving of this gift clearly reveals divinity reaching out to humanity,to re-establish a connection and make mankind one with the Creator.

God's greatest gift to all humanity, Jesus Christ, is the answer to the heart-cry of all creation. He is the Solution to the unpleasant situation of our world today, and the only One that can make a difference for all irrespective of one's race, color, and belief.
Religion can not heal our world but Jesus Christ, God's greatest gift, can. And you know what? He is ever willing to make a lasting difference for everyone, and in every place where he is accepted. He alone has that ability; not the religions of this world, not the governments of the nations of our world, and not any human being ( no matter who such a one is or what such a person has ). Please, see some of these scriptures that attest to this truth: John 1:1-14 & 5:21-27, Acts 10:38, Romans 5:1 & 8-19, 2 Corinthians 5:17-19, Ephesians 2:4-14, Philippians 2:9-11, Colossians 1:12-17.

Have you received this greatest gift of God to all humanity?
