Merry Christmas my name is crisp Avila
and we’re counting down the 25 things
Jesus says about Christmas to see how it
changes the way you and I celebrate the
season when we go straight to the source
now come Christmas morning there’s going
to be kids all around the globe who are
gonna be squealing at the sight of
presents spilling out from underneath
their Christmas tree and actually if you
think about it it’s kind of strange that
we would give each other gifts to
celebrate someone else’s birthday until
you realize why as we see in number 21
of our countdown and these are probably
the most famous words in the Bible when
Jesus says God so loved the world that
He gave His only begotten Son that
whoever believes in Him will not perish
but have eternal life not to unpack
these words a little bit think about
this idea of a gift it’s something you
receive that you haven’t earned that
someone else gives to you that’s what
makes it a gift so you can give a gift
on any day right like you give a gift on
birthdays or you could give a gift on
like Thanksgiving actually it would make
more sense to give gifts on Thanksgiving
than Christmas wouldn’t it well when you
put so much effort and so much energy
into giving a gift on this day in this
season you’re saying to the person not
only do I think you’re special but
there’s something special about this day
and here’s where we see how these words
change the way you and I celebrate this
season because when we give our gifts
this Christmas we’re leading the
recipient to ask a deeper question why
is this day so special and could God so
loved me that He gave His only begotten
Son it kind of makes you want to give
some more gifts this year doesn’t it
