The BEST gift you have ever given at Christmas… 

1. Three “T’s” (1-2, 11)

  • T____________

“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” – Matthew 6:33 (Luke 10:38-42)

  • T__________________

“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” – Matthew 6:19-21

  • T_______________

“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.” – 1 Peter 4:10-11 (Matthew 5:14-16, Ephesians 2:10)

2. Lordship (vs. 2, 11)

  • One more “T” T____________

“Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it. What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit their very self?” – Luke 9:23-25 (Romans 10:9)

3. Worship (vs. 11)

“And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him.” – Romans 12:1

“Give to the Lord the glory he deserves! Bring your offering and come into his presence. Worship the Lord in all his holy splendor.” – 1 Chronicles 16:29

  • Psalm 8, 63, 100, 145-146
