It's Christmas time once again. At this time of year, we think about Christmas trees, fellowship, and food (lots and lots of food), but most of all we think about gifts we are going to give to one another. We should think, first, about the greatest Christmas gift ever given, the Lord Jesus Christ, God's Son. If we think of that gift, we will respond as Paul did in 2 Corinthians 9:15, "Thanks be to God for His unspeakable gift"
While we think about God's great gift to us, we usually think about the gifts we are going to get for the people we love. You know, socks for Uncle Dan, a stick pin for Aunty Sue, a book for Grandpa, and etc. What about the gift we give Jesus? We already know the gift that He wants from us. He wants our hearts to Him and our bodies a living sacrifice to Him. Yet, many times we have a hard time giving ourselves to Jesus. Moses, one of the greatest men who ever lived, also had a difficult time giving himself to the LORD for the task God had created him to do. It would be helpful this Christmas season to look at the struggle Moses had in giving himself to the LORD. Hopefully, while learning from him, we too will learn how to give ourselves to Jesus this Christmas. Moses' problem began in Exodus 3 as the LORD interrupted his life for a word from his Creator.
