Ignoring The Greatest Gift

This is the season Christ was given, so His Spirit could then live in,
In the very heart of earthly men, when believers are truly born again;
The Holy Spirit is what I speak of, sent by God from Heaven above,
Sent down to all who truly believe, Godís Spirit, all believers receive.

Today on earth for many living, this has become a season of giving,
Giving, which began with The Lord, Who, by many, today is ignored,
Focusing today on their biggest gift, creates for many a spiritual rift,
A separation with God between, those engrossed in a holiday scene.

While seeking for others big gifts, in the true madness of Christmas,
Many donít seek the best gift of all, the One, delivered inside a stall,
The One with an unmatched price, who actually became our sacrifice,
That One Gift being Jesus Christ, Who, offers us a gift of eternal life.

Christ was sent to all by God above; Godís Gift of unparalleled Love.
Christ, whoís actually the only reason, why we even have this season,
Yet the many today continue to ignore, Christ, Who came well before
All those now presently on earth, to offer those souls a spiritual birth.

Christmas by many, is truly spent, ignoring that Gift, which God sent,
To not just one, but every nation, to bring to all men Godís Salvation,
The Greatest Gift to all mankind, One which many today leave behind,
With God lost in their holiday strife, as they continue on in a futile life.

Heís coming very soon as the signs are very clear,
And when that trumpet sounds, weíll be otta here!
Praise God for our Great Blessed Hope, Who Will
Deliver All Those Who Believe, out of this present
World of Darkness into His Glorious Eternal Light!
(1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 and Titus 2:11-14)

Wonderfully expressed, I love this and agree with you. Amen!

"Poetry is not an opinion expressed. It
is a song that rises from a bleeding
wound...or a smiling mouth"
~Kahlil Gibran~
