They tell us that this is the time more people give up and end there lives than any other time of the year. That is so sad as now is the time we should remember and realize that the HOPE entered the world, and knowing the HOPE is free. Separation from the Father and trying to earn His approval is not possible for Man which is what causes the depression that plagues so many this time of year it also is what causes acts of desperation in followers of faiths seeking to earn reconciliation. However the GIFT is free and anyone can accept it. What a waste to give up when the goal is easily attained, to make something so easy so hard and fail in the end. The thing is you can know the peace anytime and anywhere the decision to believe in Jesus and follow HIM is yours and no one else's. Christians call telling God you accept his gift through Jesus, Prayer, and that is one Prayer He will always answer in the affirmative.
Giving gifts is claimed to be the greater joy but you know in your heart you LOVE getting them just as much. I challenge you this year to think about accepting the Biggest, Best and Coolest gift you could ever get. I'ed like to introduce you to the greatest person who ever lived on this earth. Jesus.
