'Tis the Season...

Wow...December is here. My son's birthday is this month as well as The Son's Birthday.  Ideas for a present for a family member is not usually a problem.  But, what can I possibly give to Jesus Christ that conveys my love and gratitude for my eternal salvation and my changed heart and life?
"Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me." 
Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, "Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me." ~ Jesus Christ, as recorded in Matt. 35:34-40
The way I live my everyday life is my thank you to Jesus Christ for all He has done for me. 

'Tis the season to be kind and generous.  
'Tis the season to be an open present!

This is beautiful, Diane. I know plenty of people forget to bless back our Lord. I am not exempted. It is easy to whine and complain and ask God for more..... especially things we want but most often doesn't need.

Thank you for the timely reminder. Counting our blessings, for me, is also like giving back God the glory. Sharing the gospel to someone would also be a gift to Jesus even if that is our purpose as Christians. We still have the freedom of choice whether to heed the call or not.

Amen, Lolita! Amen!
