We are approaching a time when much of our thinking turns to gifts. The children are making lists of things they want and what they can afford to purchase for others. This time of the year, like no other, we are looking for bargains. The greatest bargain cannot be captured with a dollar, nor found in the corner of any retail store. The greatest bargain can be found only as one turns his eyes from the material things of this world and considers the things that will outlast time as we know it. Things like the value of relationships and especially our relationship with Jesus.
God offers us the greatest gift of all—eternal life through His Son, Jesus Christ. The greatest bargain for us COST JESUS His life and it COST GOD His Son (John 3:16). The greatest gift in all the world—the bargain of bargains is available to all who will follow Jesus as Lord. As you prepare for the holiday don’t leave out Jesus.
