What did I give the world at Christmas? My life for the forgiveness of your sins. That from Me and through Me and in Me you could have life.1
It all began when I designed the amazing and beautiful world that you live in and gave you life. Then I gave you My life, thus offering you access to eternal life. I give you hope through the knowledge that I am eternal, unchangeable, and never going away.
I promise you good things now and in the afterlife. I know that in this life you will face troubles and problems, but I promise to stand with you through them.2 Be assured that with My strength, you can overcome difficulties rather than be overcome.3 I promise you that you will never be alone. “I will never leave you nor forsake you. I will not leave you comfortless.”4
I gave you the promise of eternal life long ago, when I came to earth. I was born, lived, and died because I loved you, and I will always love you. I am your Christmas gift.
