56. The Christmas Gift

November 26, 2014images

Dear loved ones,

What was your favorite Christmas gift?  Does one come to mind?

A bike, an iPod, a homemade pot holder, an “I’ll clean the house” IOU, a trip toDisneyland . . .
.
Did you think of something?
.
Well, there’s another gift that stands remembering. The gift of the Savior of the World.
.
This Christmas, the church has produced a beautiful new video called He is the Gift. The video is a breathtaking reminder that the most important thing about Christmas is remembering that Jesus Christ is not only the reason for the season, but the first and greatest gift of Christmas.

.
God gave us His Son, and because of His Son, we can have everlasting life, freedom from sin and regret, a knowledge that death is not the end, and the power to do all things that we could not do on our own otherwise. Just like my favorite scripture, in Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”
.
Please take a moment to watch this video:

.
Then, share this gift. Share the video with your loved ones this season and reintroduce and remind everyone of this universal, powerful gift of love.
.
I love you all. Happy Holidays, Happy Thanksgiving, Happy Christmas, Happy life.
.
Love and blessings and every good thing,
Sister Hansen
