Hearing a loved one at Christmas say “It’s just what I need” is music to the giver’s ears. It sure beats a quizzical look followed by what could be a hurtful “What is it?” or “Seriously?” question. After thinking carefully about what to buy, where to buy it, and how much to spend – a less than enthusiastic response isn’t your idea of Christmas cheer.

One thing is for sure: when God gives, His gifts are “just what we need” every time. Especially when it came to Jesus’ birth. After years of planning and preparation, the gift God gave to the world is what the world needed then and still needs now. It can change our lives now and forever.

This Sunday we’ll see why. The answer is in the forefront of the Christmas story, which has “just what I need” written all over it. It’s beneficial, amazing, undeserved, life-changing, and more.
