*Better Than Father Christmas *
Bible verse: Acts 10:38 “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.”
We are gradually getting into the Christmas season. Yesterday was the second Sunday of Advent. If we haven’t been in the current Pandemic, traditionally, younger children will have been visiting the Father Christmas grotto to receive gifts. Most children believes Christmas is not complete until a visit to Father Christmas is completed as gifts makes them happy. Also this season is a special season that families and friends all over the world exchange gifts of love.
However, Father Christmas doesn’t usually visit but are located in a place to be visited.
Can I introduce someone better than Father Christmas to you reading this devotional today. Our Bible verse today in Acts 10:38 is one of my favourite scriptures, Jesus Christ is better than Father Christmas because he is the gift of God for salvation. Also His gifts are joyful as he went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed of the devil, for God was with him. Therefore can I encourage you reading this devotional today to receive Jesus Christ into your life and affairs as he went about doing good. His gifts are “Better Gifts than the physical Father Christmas as they will give you joy. God blesses you as you think about this.
Lord Jesus Christ, I receive your better gifts of goodness and healing from every oppression of the devil in your holy name I pray. Amen.
