The Best Gift

Christmas is a celebration of the birth of Jesus, who came “into the world to testify to the truth” (John 18:36).

The love of God for eternity – what better gift could we have?

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish, but have eternal life.
John 3:16
