Scripture: John 1
This Sunday we launched a new series on Gifts. The recording starts with a reading from John 1 by Elizabeth and Jackie, then Melissa launches into a story from her early childhood.
We want gifts to be unconditional, with no strings attached. But that’s almost impossible for us to accomplish. Human gifts almost always have strings attached.
The gift of Jesus is the first gift ever given. It takes place outside of time. In the beginning was the Word. And the Word was with God. This is a gift from God. You can’t return it. You can’t pay it back. God and God’s love is complete. The perfect gift.
