The divine story of giving comes through the Birth of JESUS CHRIST. The little fellow’s birth was prophesied and written about throughout the Bible. There are many songs about the great miracle that took place in the City of David, yet the message has gotten lost in the worldly meaning of the Savior’s Birth; Christmas. It has been scrutinized in many ways, but the message is still simple, whether we believe it or not. CHRIST was born of a Virgin, came from Heaven to save the sins of the world. Each year around the beginning of November some people begin to think of this remarkable event, unfortunately not in the way the LORD intended.
The giving season should honor the Savior, reason, purpose of His birth… yeah there is an extraordinary purpose to this event that took place over 2000 years ago. It was not meant to be an event of commercial glamor or materialized fanfare. There is a simple way for remembering and celebrating this Grand event, how the people observed and welcomed the baby King to the world, and provide it to someone in need of GOD’s Love.
(Luke 2:6-14) 6 While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 7 and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.
9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
“Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.
During this giving season, I had the pleasure of serving for a ministry project, the Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child (OCC). What if you could send a shoebox somewhere in the world to a child telling them that JESUS loves them? You can through the OCC ministries. The organization sends a small gift to millions of children who have more than likely never received a gift from anyone. Not only do they receive GOD’s love in a tangible manner, but they also are given information about the true Holy Gospel of CHRIST. The primary goal of the ministry is to introduce kids to CHRIST providing them with a 12-lesson program to learn how to follow CHRIST, eventually telling others about the Savior.
