Spiritually Edifying gifts…

At this time of year, we are often scurrying around and brainstorming what special gift we can give to those special people in our lives.

I like challenges… So here we go….. I challenge you to sit down and make a list and try to think of ways to give gifts that will help your loved ones grow spiritually or for those who do not know Christ, gifts that will point them to Christ a little at a time.

I am sure that you have heard of “My Hope” with Billy Graham.  (https://myhopewithbillygraham.org/)  You could purchase a quantity of them available on the internet or if you do not have internet, I can order for you.   This short DVD has the Gospel message for the lost and Billy Graham is encouraging those who already know Christ to invite friends into their homes and share it with others.   This would be a great gift for your Christian friend to help them become burdened to win others to Christ. Give Bibles or spiritual books such as devotional books which parents can read to  their children rather than toys which will end up in the bottom of the toy box and this will encourage the parents to read to their children and begin a habit of having family devotions daily.  Do the children in your life know that you love the Lord Jesus with all your heart?  Make little crafts with them that have a spiritual emphasis.  Make a recording of yourself reading a book and give them the book so that they can listen and read along while listening to Auntie or Grandma or yes, Grandpa reading. What a keepsake that would be.  How about a T-Shirt or a sweatshirt with a Scripture on it, or “Jesus Loves YOU?”

The time is short and I am not talking about  Christmas. I am talking about the fact that Jesus is coming soon.  It is urgent that we who know Christ, win those to the Saviour who do not know Him.

The Gideons have beautiful Christmas cards  which you can purchase. I am sure they will share about that today.

Go to www.kristinsfriends.com and ask for the free gospel tract called      “Gone, in the Twinkling of an Eye”, which you can have as many as you can prayerfully use to share the way to be saved. It is the story of a young 17-year-old girl who died suddenly of a blood clot in her brain who was a Christian and her parents wanted to make a difference for Christ in her memory.

I also have a great deal available for a KJV Scripture memory DVD for just $10. (Usually $17.99). I do not make anything on these. It has seventy-nine  Scriptures with little activities and stories that explain what those Scriptures mean.

Deut. 6:7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
