There are many at Christmastime that do not wish for things large or expensive but are hoping for and will be very thankful for a needed item such as a pair of shoes. The greatest gift I ever received was salvation. It never gets old. It is the gift I desire to share with everyone I meet. Jesus is the gift the Father bestowed upon a sin-sick world. We will spend eternity singing praise for a gift such as this.
Christmas shoes were delivered to the door,
With Santa’s name attached, but they were from the Lord.
They are not fancy or flimsily made in fact;
They are sturdily made to last.
They fit perfectly…oh how he now runs.
His heart is full, he feels free to join in on the fun.
This was a Christmas gift needed, not a toy to be thrown aside;
To yet another story bring alive.
The babe in the manger grew to be delivered to your heart’s door.
With the gift of salvation presented from the Lord.
It also was needed; not flimsy or to be thrown aside.
In His strength you are able to run free and alive.
If you have the sweet assurance that your feet are shod,
With the holy gospel-truth the provision of God,
Rejoice and give thanks for the gift of God’s Son.
If not, prepare yourself to receive your running shoes to come.
And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
