THREE GIFTS 12-25-20

_092014 Hands of the lord

It’s a great day everyone. I want to join all of you as we say Happy Birthday to the Lord of our lives, Jesus Christ. We as his family know that he is the reason for the season, but we should be celebrating every day because of what He did for us over 2000 years ago; Merry Christmas.

Today’s Prayer

Hallelujah! Jesus Christ the Savior was born, God incarnate in the flesh as a babe in a lowly manger! Happy birthday Jesus! We pray that today, Your heart will be happy and rejoice over the souls who have accepted Your gift of forgiveness and life eternal. Thank You for interceding for us, for making us righteous through Your blood atonement, for “standing in the gap” and being there for us. Glory to You, oh Lamb of God, the Word that was and is and is to come. We praise You today and remember what You have done. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. We pray that we will be a blessing to You. Please guide and direct our every step, that we will always be about our Father’s business and be pleasing in His sight. In Your precious holy name we pray, Amen.


“And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh…” – MATTHEW 2:11

Many people think these three gifts were just random. No, and they weren’t random trinkets; these were treasures that didn’t occur by happenstance. They carry deep significance. They were planned.

Why these specific gifts? They are highly symbolic.

  • Gold speaks of His sovereign dominion—He was born a King.
  • Frankincense symbolizes His sinless deity—He is God in human flesh.
  • Myrrh represents His sacrificial death—He was born to die that we might live.

He is a king; they brought gold. He is God; they brought frankincense. He is a Savior; they brought myrrh. They signify His sovereign dominion, sinless deity, and sacrificial death.

Now that we know this, how should it instruct us today? Because He is a King, He has my wealth. Because He is God, He has my worship. And because He died, He has my witness. All that I am, all that I have, and all that I do belongs to this One. That is wisdom. That’s what a wise person will do. Do some soul-searching today. Are you really wise?
