Christmas is an exchange of gifts – Vance Havner

Christmas is an exchange of gifts – Vance Havner

Christmas is based on an exchange of gifts, the gift of God to man—His unspeakable gift of His Son, and the gift of man to God—when we present our bodies a living sacrifice.

Real Christianity – Catherine Booth

Real Christianity – Catherine Booth

Show the world a real, living, self-sacrificing, hard-working, toiling, triumphing Christianity, and the world will be influenced by it; but anything short of that they will turn round and spit upon.

Gifts of the Spirit – Jack W. Hayford

Gifts of the Spirit – Jack W. Hayford

Jesus gives us the gift of the Holy Spirit, yet when the Spirit comes, He is loaded with packages! He desires to release much more in us and through us than we could ever imagine. These gifts are given for delivery, not for accumulation. We receive them to pass them on to others.

A Zealous Man – JC Ryle

A Zealous Man – JC Ryle

A zealous man feels that like a lamp he is made to burn; and if consumed in burning, he has but done the work for which God appointed him. Such a one will always find a sphere for his zeal. If he cannot preach and work and give money, he will cry and sigh and pray.

How a Christian Should Live – David Livingstone

Do not think me mad. It is not to make money that I believe a Christian should live. The noblest thing a man can do is, just humbly to receive, and then go amongst others and give.

The Perfect Christmas Gift – Corrie ten Boom

Who can add to Christmas? The perfect motive is that God so loved the world. The perfect gift is that He gave His only Son. The only requirement is to believe in Him. The reward of faith is the you shall have everlasting life.

Compassion Costs – Samuel Chadwick

Compassion costs. It is easy enough to argue, criticize and condemn, but redemption is costly, and comfort draws from the deep. Brains can argue, but it takes heart to comfort.
