The Three Gifts of Christmas

Updated on October 12, 2014

The Gift of This Life

God gave us the gift of this life and a life we are yet to live. There is also the life we have yet to come when this life is done. A life with the Savior free of this world's discord. A life where peace will be the ultimate reward

The Gift of a Home

The gift of a home not of this world but Heaven above. A home which is filled with the Fathers love. A home built by Jesus with his own two hands A home we'll share with others, in God's Promised land

The Gift of a Family

The gift of a family tied together by the Blood of the risen Savor, who is Jesus Christ. A family together now called the church. A family called to tell others of mankind’s rebirth. A family who together rejoice and sing of the Christmas miracle and the joy which it brings.

Start with a poem

When I think of the first Christmas,
so long long ago
I think of Mary and Joseph,
what did they know

I think of a stable,
a manger for a bed
Where the baby Jesus,
laid down his sweet head

I think of the shepherds
in the meadow at night
When the skies opened up
in a heavenly light

I think of the angels who announced
the news of Jesus' birth
God in the flesh
had come down to this earth

I think of the wise men seeking,
numbered maybe three
Who followed a star
to a Bethlehem street

I think of the gifts they offered
gold, frankincense and myrrh
Gifts meant for a king,
of a royal worth

But of that first Christmas
so long,long ago
I also think of the gifts
which God on mankind bestowed

Gifts we didn't ask for
but gifts God freely gave
To a sinful world
in his heart he wanted to save

The Nativity Story
