Christmas - Share the Gift!

"Christmas is a time of reflection on what we can become because of God's sacred gift. As we discover the gift, we learn of the immeasurable love of God and our absolute need for a Savior. As we embrace the gift, we strengthen our faith in Jesus Christ and our desire to become more like Him. As we share the gift, we follow in the Master's footsteps, who invited all to hear His message."
                                                                              -Elder Russell M. Nelson
                                                                            of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles

  1. What a wonderful reminder of the greatest gift ever given! Let us focus our efforts this Christmas season on the things of eternal importance. Let us share the message of Jesus Christ who was born, lived a perfect life and then was sacrificed so we could return to our Heavenly Father. It is only in Him and through His gospel that we can truly be happy. Let us share that message from the rooftops!

  2. As we enter the Christmas season, this is a wonderful reminder of what is truly important and the reason for the season. As I watched this, it made me feel a sense of peace knowing that our Heavenly Father loves each one of us so much that he gave us His son Jesus Christ. I am eternally grateful for the sacrifice of my Savior and hope that I can focus my thoughts on others and remember what the season is really about.

  4. This is a beautiful reminder that while there a lots of fun things associated with Christmas, the real reason for Christmas is to remember Christ and that he is the best gift we have ever or will ever be given. I am so grateful for Christ and what he did for us.

  5. This video reminded me of God's love for all of us. It does not matter whether we are rich or poor, young or old, popular or unpopular; He loves each of us equally. For this reason, He sent His Son to save us all, if we will but accept this Gift and repent our sins. That is the message that I took from this video. It is the same message that I am reminded of each week as I partake of the sacrament. The best way we can celebrate this Christmas, is by being as Christ-like as possible, thus helping others to remember Him and his gift of salvation, available to any who desires to partake of it.

  6. I enjoyed this video as it reminded me what Christmas should be about. It is easy to get caught up in the hustle of the Christmas season but it should be about the birth of our Savior and the amazing gift that is to all of us.

  7. I love Christmas. The more Christ centered it is, the more enjoyable the season becomes. I love how the family is more willing to spend time together and to create memories during this holiday. I am grateful for the First Gift--the Son of God. I am grateful for the countless other gifts I have received because of Him.
