He Gave Us The Very Best He Had – Give Him The Very Best You Have

 

Once again the Christmas season is upon us. Many people are shopping, preparing to give gifts to friends and loved ones.  It is a good thing to give, for God has said in His word that it is more blessed to give than to receive. 

We know that the greatest gift that was given, was from God. For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him, should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16).  That gift is Jesus the Christ, whose birth we celebrate at this time.

Years ago, I used to play a song for  choirs which we would sing at our church services every year. It was always one of my favorites, as it was a reminder of how God gave us His best, and why we in turn should  always want to give Him our best.  Not just in our church activities, but in the life we live every day. 

This song was penned many years ago by James Dewitt Johnson. It tells the story about the birth of Jesus, and what He did for us, which is why He is the best gift ever given to this world. 

 

                                       “He Gave Us The Very Best He Had”

                                      God gave to the world, His only begotten son 

                                      To bring peace and great tidings, of great joy 

                                      And the star, from the East, shined on this great boy 

                                      God gave us, the very best, He had 

 

                                      The shepherds, they followed the star,  to the east, where Jesus lay 

                                      All wrapped in swaddling clothes, in a manger, filled with hay 

                                      The wise men, they came from afar

                                      Just to see this great child,  that had been sent, by God 

 

                                     The Son went to Calvary, and He hung, on the cross 

                                     Just to save this world,  from sin, and lost 

                                     He hung, on the cross, for it was all He could do 

                                     And to the world, His love, He did prove 

 

                                    God gave us, the very best, He had 

                                    God gave us, His son 

                                    The most precious gift, from anyone 

                                    God gave us, the very best, He had 

 

Jesus Christ is the best gift that has ever been given.  God gave us His best.  That should make us always want to give Him our best.  Not just at Christmas, or just in our local church activities, but in our daily living.   

Give him the best in your walk, in your talk,  and in how you look.  We are children of the most High God, a royal priesthood.  When we come together to worship, remember you are presenting yourself  before the King of Kings, the ultimate royalty.  Therefore, dress your best, walk your best, talk your best, give Him your best praise.  Live your best, and be His true church everyday and everywhere. 

Know that Jesus is coming back, not for a building, but for a church(people) without spot or wrinkle.

God gave us the very best He had. Give Him the very best you have.
