Part One: Presents from God.
presents – 2 more days to go.
reminds us of presents from God:
Orange and Fruit - world
But we’ve messed up the world – war in Iraq. Closer to home.
We’ve done a similar thing with the presents God has given us.
Great news about Christmas – God doesn’t just give us the present and get on with it.
Candle – Jesus came to shine as a light in a dark world.
Ribbon – Blood to set us free from the mistakes that we’ve made.
Part Two: Giving back to God.
Little Johnny + letter to santa joke
Talking about presents God gives us – great news is that they are given to us free.
We don’t have to try and impress God. He knows what we’re like.
In return what can we give him.
