God's three free gifts
We all love getting gifts, and there are three very special ones that God has given each of us...
Christ received three gifts when He was born: Gold (representing purity and value), Frankincense (representing our beautiful aroma to God when we've been filled with the fire of the Holy Spirit), and Myrrh (representing a bitter but healing herb).
God has given us three gifts in turn - the life of His son Jesus Christ, the power of the Holy Spirit to help our lives, and the hope of resurrection and living forever in heaven with God.
