A Sermon (#561) Preached By William “Bill” Touchton
Edited & Preached By Michael D. Lawson
If you have your Bibles, turn with me to Luke 2:8-20. This morning, of course, we want to continue looking at the birth of Jesus as we celebrate his incarnation.
Christmas has always been a very special time of the year for me, and I guess over the course of my life, I have received hundreds of gifts…
I remember when I was a boy, my mother gave me a Bible with my name engraved…zipper…and pictures that illustrated the stories…I still have that Bible.
In December of 1886, my wife gave me one to honor my last semester of school. I have used it so much that the cover is coming off…and the pages are coming out. It was and still is, a very special gift.
While living in GA, our first semester, a man in my SS class brought a box, it contained a 25lb ham. We took that man to the meat market and had it sliced and ate off that for a month!
One of our widows brought me a new suit.
I have received so many wonderful gifts, but the best gift I have ever received came from God.
