Jesus, You are my Indescribable Gift!  The story of Your birth proclaims the greatest Gift ever given to man – God made flesh!

"Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city in Galilee, called Nazareth, to a virgin engaged to a man whose name was Joseph, of the descendants of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.  And coming in, he said to her, "Hail, favored one!  The Lord is with you."  But she was greatly troubled at this statement, and kept pondering what kind of salutation this might be.  And the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary; for you have found favor with God.  And behold, you will conceive in your womb, and bear a Son, and you shall name Him Jesus.  He will be GREAT, and will be called the Son of the Most High;" Luke 1:26-32

Jesus, You are GREAT!  You are remarkable in magnitude, eminent, distinguished, grand, superior in character and noble!  Gabriel appeared to Mary to tell her that she would have a Son - but He would be like no other!  He would be MUCH MORE than she could ever imagine!  Oh Jesus, I hear these words - but cannot fully grasp that You, the One who is GREAT above all I can imagine - would be born to Mary, a young virgin.  Give me eyes to see who You really are - the GREATEST GIFT ever given to man!  The One who is GREAT!!!

As you begin this ADVENT SEASON - ask God to give you eyes to see Jesus in a fresh new way!  He is the One who is GREAT!   Worship and praise Him today!!

(What difference does it make in your life today that Jesus is GREAT?)
