More than a gift

Here in Germany there’s a popular item sold in many of the Christmas markets called a nesting doll. It appears as one doll but actually it is usually a set of five or six wooden dolls, each nesting inside the other. If you don’t know it opens, it’s difficult to see the seam.

One beautiful doll with hidden treasure.

Sometimes we only see the baby in the manger. We understand the true gift that the Creator of the universe gave His children. The sacrifice and atonement Jesus made gives each of His followers eternal life.

But just like those nesting dolls, we never see what’s inside. We can love and cherish it and do everything in our power to make it part of our lives. If we don’t know there’s more, we are missing the supernatural experience of an intimate relationship with the Savior.

Like the many facets of a diamond sparkling in the light, Jesus meets our every need.

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulders; and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6, KJV

Christmas Blessings, Francine

    Wow! I love that illustration, Francine! And the thing is, we open the doll, see that something's inside and think we've FOUND it! And some people never bother looking further (when it comes to Jesus); but there continues to be something inside and, unlike the dolls, that something doesn't end after 5 or 6. There's always something new to discover with Jesus.
