Jesus is the Gift
Jesus is the gift that perfectly fits every heart
and it is with His love that all celebration starts.
We rejoice in Him as we remember His birth
and thank God for sending His only Son to earth.
His life led from a manger to a cross on a hill
where He faithfully followed His Father's perfect will.
He freely laid down everything so that we could live
and there is no greater treasure anyone could give.
Like a scarlet ribbon His love wrapped around the cross
and He offered it to us all at the greatest cost.
So each time that we give we remember what He's done
and honor the perfect Gift - God's one and only Son.
For God so loved the world that He gave... John 3:16
Jesus is the Gift is a movement that focuses on and honors Jesus as the ultimate gift. We encourage Christians to celebrate Him by tying a ribbon around a cross as a visual reminder of His sacrifice. We also challenge believers to engage in gift giving as a loving act of ministry and reflection of Jesus rather than a chore or obligation.
Our goal is not to discourage the many wonderful aspects of the Christmas season but to redeem giving, decorating, and celebrating in a way that brings "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men" (Luke 2:14).
