"He is the Gift" - mormon.org/christmas
How did you feel watching this video?
One of the best things about serving as a missionary is getting to see the power and worth of this first and greatest gift.
I know it is hard sometimes to believe that one single man could have the means to save us all from sorrow, pain and even death. Many are saying it is not possible. Nevertheless I get to witness every day that it IS possible. It does not matter if somebody believes in God or if he is a convinced atheists. Every single one of my friends here in Spain who accepts the message I share, receives those blessings of comfort and peace.
This time before Christmas should be a time for all of us to remember and reevaluate what truly matters to us. A time to check if our efforts are truly focused on what can bring us the greatest and long lasting happiness and satisfaction. I promise you that the joyful message and teachings of Jesus Christ can make it even greater.
There is a reason why billions of people remember the birth of this one man. There is a reason why I am here in Spain. There is a reason why people are willing to let two 19 year old strangers into their house and change their lives. It’s because it is true. Because He, Jesus Christ, is the Gift given to every single one of us by a loving God, even our loving Heavenly Father.
