The Greatest Gift
Is there such a thing as "the perfect gift? At Christmas time, shoppers go in search of it. Everyone wants his or her gift to be just what those special people in our life have always wanted. The things that people really want to make their lives better, can't be bought from a store. I'm talking about good health, peace of mind, financial security, and long life to name a few.
I remember when my children were little, at Christmas time they would always make something for me and Linda and wrap them up and put them under the Christmas tree. Those presents were gifts of Love and how precious they were. Even though these were some of the most precious gifts and bring some great memories to the mind, there is still one gift that is even greater than any gift we could ever hope for or even imagine.
The gift that can provide the missing elements of our lives. Best of all, anyone who knows where to find it can tell you where to get it, free of charge. Sound to good to be true? Yes but this is one gift that delivers what it promises.
God presented this perfect gift to the world over 2,000 years ago. His son, Jesus, was born in a stable in Bethlehem to a humble carpenter and his betrothed, a virgin named Mary. There was no get-together to celebrate the blessed event, only a star casting down its light from the night sky.
During the Christmas holiday, Christians celebrate Jesus birth as the beginning of something wonderful. Without His birth, there could not have been a victorious death at Calvary and eternal salvation for every believer. Jesus life upon this earth was short, but he left behind a lifetime of teaching.
God's love became real through Jesus Christ. Those who longed to know that God cared about them had at last found comfort. On August 13,1995 at the age of 43 driving down the road in a semi truck I cried out to Jesus to save me! And he did! Now, I have a friend who will never disappoint me and a Father who answers when I call.
Remember the things I mentioned earlier: good health, peace of mind, financial freedom, and long life? God provides all of this to whosoever ask through his Son.
Would you like to know where to find God's greatest gift? He's as close as your knees are to the floor. Tell him that you want him to become a part of your life. Ask him to forgive your sins and make your heart and mind whole again. The greatest gift of all, is yours for the asking.

I logged over 4 million miles as a truck driver from 1972 - 2007 and I have written a lot of it in my songs. God has taken me off the road and put me into full time ministry, but I still have a heart for all you drivers out there.
