Love Enough To Give Away

                                        Love Enough To Give Away

                           This Christmas Ill give You my heart,

I’ll give You the gift of my mind (1 Cor. 2:16). Rather than filling my mind with things that keep me from growing closer to You, I’ll fill it with things that are good, and pure, and true.
 I’ll give You the gift of my heart (Mark 7:21). Through compassion, love for others, and refusal to give in to the ways of the world, I’ll let my heart be transformed by the power of You so that my life will be a blessing to You.
I’ll give You the gift of my witness (Acts 20:24). Instead of walking in fear, I’ll walk in the boldness of my calling and tell others the good news about Jesus.

 I’ll give You the gift of my love (Matt. 22:37). Refusing to love the world, I’ll replace that desire with the yearning to place You first in every aspect of my life.
 I’ll give You the gift of my faith (James 2:18). Living out what I claim I believe, You will see that my deeds match my proclamation. Moving from lip service to actual service in Your kingdom will be my living creed.
Those are some of the gifts I plan to give God this Christmas. How about you? Have you made your list yet? Isn’t it time that we gave God our very best?
