The Perfect Gift – James 1:16-18

A Promise from God – Genesis 3:15 – “And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head and you will strike his heal.”

The Promise Clarified – Isaiah 7:6 – “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”

The Promise Fulfilled – Matthew 1:1 – “A record of the genealogy of Jesus Christ the son of David, the son of Abraham.” Matthew 3:17 – A Voice from heaven said, “This is my Son whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”

The Fulfillment Clarified – John 3:16-17 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through, him.”

In this month of the celebration of the birth of Jesus our savior, let us not forget that in spite of our failures, God still  loves us and provides the gift of salvation. In spite of Adam’s failures or all the failures we make, God The Father gave us his Son Jesus as the perfect gift to reconcile us to Him with forgiveness for those failures. In this season, let us celebrate Jesus, God’s perfect gift.  James 1:17 – Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
