In the Whirled: Our greatest Christmas gift

“… the submission of one’s will is really the only uniquely personal thing we have to place on God’s altar. The many other things we 'give' … are actually the things He has already given or loaned to us. However, when you and I finally submit ourselves, by letting our individual wills be swallowed up in God’s will, then we are really giving something to Him! It is the only possession which is truly ours to give!”

Christ understood his mission. We honor him, during Christmas and every day of the year, by understanding, and living, ours.
