Charles Warner | The Union Times The story of the first Christmas is the story of a gift, the most precious ever given or that ever will be given. The gift was Jesus Christ, the only begotten of Son of God, given by His Father to the human race. In giving His Son, God gave the human race something it could never have otherwise, the gift of eternal salvation. God’s gift to humanity, the only part of creation He made in His image, was given out of love and that gift, His Son, willingly allowed His Father to give him as a gift even though He knew what it would require of Him. It would require that He who was without sin take upon Himself the sins of the world so that humanity might receive forgiveness for their sins and gain eternal life with their Lord and Savior. More than 2,000 years later, the gift given that first Christmas, a gift willingly given, both by the giver and the one given as that gift, continues to change lives and save souls. This Christmas, remember that first gift and what it means and decide whether you will accept that gift and all that acceptance brings, or reject it and face the consequences of that rejection.
