He came wrapped in swaddling clothes, in a manger, the gift for you and me;
A Savior and a Redeemer for all the world to receive.
“Oh, such a pretty baby,” I trust said a few;
Little did they know for what, He’d come to do.
A Wonderful Counselor, our Healer, our Comforter,
and the living water that never ends;
Our Righteous, our Mercy, and an everlasting friend.
We were full of sin and shame, living a life full of pain;
Doomed to die and living a lie, but God Stepped in.
This Gift was given to all the world, so we could be set free;
Freedom to live life abundantly.
A life full of joy, a life of peace and love;
A life full of truth and purpose given from God in love.
This gift was carefully thought out and prepared for me and you;
Something to help us in everything we do.
Understanding and wisdom in our heart to help us along the way;
To live, holy, just and blameless each and every day.
God the Father gave to us his only begotten Son;
Such an Unspeakable Gift because now the victory is won.
Have you accepted God’s Unspeakable Gift of Jesus Christ today?
It’s free of charge waiting to be received. All you must do is believe.

Jesus is the Ultimate Gift!
,Imagine a world without Jesus; a world full of hopeless, hurting people. A world without the love and truth of God and the hope of eternal life. Jesus came to fulfill God’s promise to save all mankind from their sins. He showed us that God was real.
Jesus defined what true religion was all about and brought clarity about equality for everyone. He taught people how to love one another, pray and have faith in God. From the time of his birth until his death on the cross, he continues to make an impact on the world today; this is why Jesus was the most important factor in history.
Jesus was the Son of God born to Mary and Joseph his stepfather. He was born in Bethlehem in 6BC. By the age of 12, he was learning in the Jewish temples. Jesus started his public ministry at the age of 25. During his public ministry, he fed the poor, healed the sick, and gave sight to the blind. He performed many miracles and ministered Gods word to all who listened. During his ministry, Jesus taught people how to love God and one another. He taught them the great love of God and how God sent him down to save all mankind from eternal judgment. Jesus taught people how to serve God, how to have faith and to pray.
Jesus faced many challenges as he addressed the religious leaders with God’s truth. Many did not understand or refused to believe that Jesus was the Son of God and the promised Savior. They plotted against him, and he suffered much persecution because of their unbelief, but he continued to preach the word of God. Jesus called 12 disciples to help him minister to the people. He taught the 12 disciples extensively the ways of God. He taught them how to heal the sick, cast out demons, and how to pray. By his example, they were able to preach his message and perform miracles throughout the world.
Since the beginning of time, God prepared Jesus to come and give his life for all mankind. Jesus knew what he had to do, and he suffered through all the humiliation, persecution, and unbelief, but he kept going. The Bible states in John 3:16 “God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son who believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life.” Jesus gave his life so the whole world can be saved. This is how Jesus changed the world and how we have Christian religion today.
Jesus has done so much for the world from performing miracles to dying on the cross for our sins. Now we have eternal life just by believing in him. He gave us an understanding of who God is and his love for us. He also showed us the power of prayer and gave us hope for the future.
Jesus was given to all the world so we could be set free. Also so we can all have the freedom to live life abundantly, truthful, joyful peaceful, and full of love. Before Christ, we were full of sin, shame, and pain. We were doomed to die. But God sent his Son down to save us all. Given the factual evidence wouldn’t it make sense to believe in him too?
