The Gift: Unexpected

Bible Text: John 1:1-4 | Preacher: Donnie Case | Series: The Gift | There are some gifts that everyone needs but no one gets too excited about. Before the gift is opened, your expectations are high, but once you take off the wrapping your excitement turns to disappointment. Instead of the gift that you had been hoping for, you find, as in the words of my brother when we were 4 or 5 years old, “anoder shert”—a gift that you really need, but it is not the one you were hoping for. This is true of the first Christmas, because Jesus is the gift that everyone needs, but He’s not the gift everyone wants.
