It's christmas again, with the festivities all around, the partying, the gatherings, the dinners (some with some pretty errr...'interesting' conversation topics as I found out for one), the gift givings, the drinkings and whatnot happening all around the world at this period of time.

Have received some gifts from people this time, some for fostering relationships on a business basis (*ah-hem*...), some out of politeness (which is nice also), and some out of genuine giving. It's nice to receive gifts and give, for some ;), but the present that I appreciate the most was still one that couldn't be seen, given sometime back...

Christmas: the holiday declared supposedly commemorating the birth of this particular man called Jesus Christ, whom came down as God incarnate. The "Joy to the World" that we all sing about isn't without reason, for what God had promised had come true with the coming of this child: the salvation (from this) that is available to us simply by acknowledging him as our Lord and trusting in his death and resurrection.

The best part of this gift is that it can be received by all, and doesn't necessarily need to be received only on Christmas (which is why we can "celebrate" Christmas technically throughout the year, and we should actually ;) ).

Have you received it yet?

Blessed Christmas to all~ =)

PS: If there's only one present I can receive every Christmas, can it be the obedience of faith of the people around me (my family, friends, fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, etc)? That certainly would make me very very happy...
