My gift to you is: A New Birth
From Luke 1:57 - Now the time had come for Elizabeth to give birth, and she gave birth to a son.
Today, I give you my greatest gift; the ability to give birth. Pray this simple prayer with me; "Dear Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I accept you as my savior. Save me from all my sin. I invite you to be the Lord of my life. Come into my heart right now. Amen." If you prayed that prayer and meant it, you are born again. Christmas day is your birthday. Now you are a child of the King. "You are mine" says the Lord! I tell you this, when you invite me into your heart, there is a seed planted in you that is watered by my Holy Spirit and fertilized by my Word. You will release a whole life filled with new births! This is not just about one new birth; it is about a lifetime filled with a succession of new births where you discover and bring forth new levels of truth from my Word. This birthing brings new fruit for the rest of your life. Do you know you have been absolutely forgiven? That forgiveness will birth much change in you. Do you know I have forgotten every sin that you have ever committed? That will birth powerful change in you. Do you know you have my Holy Spirit? This revelation will birth a new way of living for you. Do you know the gifts of my Spirit? They will birth much as you know them and use them. There are a thousand new births for you to experience. You must be in my Word and receive the revelations of all I have for you. You cannot give birth without knowing, receiving, and acting on all that is yours.
The new birth life of following me is not just about one new birth, it is about a lifetime of giving birth. Come and enter into the joy of living my birth life. Experience my new mercies, love, and grace gifts every day of your life, for the rest of your life. I have enough gifts for you to birth a new level of living, everyday! Each day will be Christmas as you walk in my Spirit and learn of me. It all leads up to the ultimate gift - eternity with me, ruling and reigning with me in unspeakable glory over the whole universe where you will be empowered to give birth to whole new worlds. Come now and join the journey of your new birth, for all I have is yours and all I am is yours.
Are you still trying to please me by your own efforts, or have you received your new life?

An excerpt from "The Twenty Five Gifts of Christmas;
25 Daily Conversations with Jesus"
A daily devotional for December 1st through the 25th
These twenty five daily devotionals are written in first person from Jesus to you revealing twenty five gifts coming from His heart to your heart this Christmas season.
This devotional comes with a companion book: “Twelve Miracles of Christmas”. As a gift for becoming a Member of the Grace Becomes You community, we have included a download of the "Twelve Miracles of Christmas" book here. On December 25th, at the end of the series, we will make available to you all of the gifts in e-book form as well as the “Twelve Miracles of Christmas”.
The Christmas season is so busy with holiday activities on top of regular jobs, family and household duties. It is so easy for the real reason for the season to get lost in the frenzy. If your devotional life takes a dive during the holidays, fret not! Jesus has a personal word for you that will make this Christmas season spiritually vibrant.
These daily, three minute devotional readings are based on the events that took place in the lives of people around Jesus at the time of His conception and birth; Mary, Joseph, Zacharias and Elizabeth. Through these simple readings, new light springs forth from common words revealing powerful truths that will release the power of Jesus’ birth into your family, business, and your whole life all year long.
Never has one event had so much impact on the nature of man and the course of human events, from individual lives to whole of societal structures. Never has one event rewritten the lives and times of so many people on our planet. Are there personal truths just for you, hidden in these familiar passages, that could release the same earth shaking, life changing power of Jesus’ birth into your life? I believe the answer is a resounding "YES"!
Each of these twenty five personal messages reveals twenty five “gifts” Jesus is giving you. Each message is from a verse and the word that stood out to me as I prayed for you, which I have highlighted in bold. In just a few minutes a day for the next twenty five days, you can receive His gifts and release the power of Christmas to live a new, Holy Spirit powered life all year long.
Come now on a personal journey with just you and Jesus. Discover new intimacy with Him in these twenty five daily conversations leading up to Christmas. Each one is written in first person tense, as a personal message to you from Jesus. If seen with the eye of the heart, and acted upon, the twenty five gifts will release His power into your life.
