Giving the Right Gift This Time of the Year!

Posted: December 16, 2016 in Making Disciples, Personal Evangelism, Sharing the Gospel at Christmas, Witnessing Tools

This is truly the most wonderful time of the year. And at the most wonderful time of year, we all face the same dilemma and questions, “What should I give to (you fill in the name)? This is so true especially if you work in an office with various individuals. This year I bought extras gifts, at a warehouse just to have some with me in case I was given a gift by a friend/coworker.

How about that salesperson at the store where you shop? What should you give, or should you give a gift if they were to give you a little something for Christmas, a candy cane, or chocolate? What type of gift should you give?

You may have noticed that most of the membership warehouse stores have sales representatives standing by the side to greet you with an opportunity of a lifetime! (joking). I have spoken to these men for months. Yesterday, I was walking to the exit and again I was greeted by the sales representative. The man was holding up cards with the word “CASH” on the cards while stating, we offer cash off toward the purchase a new A/C or furnace unit.

As I approached the man I reached into my pocket for a gospel tract. As I handed him the tract,  with the front so he could read the cover, I said, this is a free ticket that will get you to heaven. I said, “Merry Christmas” with a big smile. The man took the gospel tract, looked at it and smiled back at me.

Salvation, is God’s free gift of eternal life, is the true gift of Christmas. God gave you salvation because someone explained or shared about Jesus Christ death, burial resurrection as payment for your sin. When you share the gospel, you are “re-gifting” God’s free gift of salvation to all who will believe.

“Whoever calls upon the name of the Lord Jesus, will be saved.” Romans 10:13.
