The Perfect Gift

Well, it's all over, the gifts have been given, some of them delighted us and will be treasured, others...didn't and won't. But what makes a gift a good one, and is there such a thing as a perfect gift?

The King's Christmas message

I don't know if the Queen's Christmas message is of any interest to you, or if you'll bother tuning in or switching on to hear it, but I want to remind you of the King's Christmas message. It's a message that ought to be of interest to everyone, and I hope you don't tune out or turn off. The reality is, you can't afford to ignore it.

The message is simple, yet profound. It's a message everyone can understand yet no one can, and it's this:
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
John 3 v 16

Don't rebel against the King any longer. Bow your knee, admit your guilt, give yourself up, turn yourself in and receive the Saviour His love provided.

Christopher Hitchens has passed away.  It is a tragedy that a man so intelligent and gifted used what God gave him in rebellion against Him.

What has God been doing for the last 2000 years?

This is a challenge that has been made by atheist, Lewis Wolpert, several times - "Tell me something God has done in the last 2000 years!"  It's a bit like hiding in the corner of a cave or burying your head in the sand and saying you can't see any evidence of the sun!

Repent, justified, sanctified

It sounds like I'm giving a formula for salvation and Christian living - the sinner repents, he is then justified by God, and goes on to live a life of practical sanctification. But that's not what I want to address here. I am not going to talk about our repentance, justification or sanctification, but God's!


I was listening to a woman talk about how she used to be a Christian, but has deconverted to become an atheist.  There are a couple of things I just want to point out that I feel may be helpful.
