Charles Warner | The Union Times God gave His Only Begotten Son so that the human might have eternal salvation, but in order for that to happen the Son had to in turn give His Life, which Jesus did willingly even though it meant leaving Heaven to live for a short time on Earth and then suffer a terrible death. These two gifts, the gift of the Son by His Father and the Son’s giving of His Life in accordance with His Father’s will is why each and every one of us has the chance to be forgiven of our sins and enjoy eternal life in Heaven with God, Jesus, and the rest of the Heavenly Host. This is the greatest gift of Christmas, a gift given freely to each and everyone of us who are free to accept it or reject it. This Christmas think about that gift, a gift unlike any other and decide whether or not you will accept or reject it. It’s a decision that will have eternal ramifications.
