He gave us the gift of a Savior, His perfect Son, the Lamb without blemish. By personal appearance of the Father Himself and of the Son, and through angels, He has restored the Church of Jesus Christ in the latter days. He has called prophets and apostles to guide us to safety in this life and eternal life in the world to come. Jesus Christ was crucified and resurrected that we may live again, that we may be purified and cleansed from sin, prepared for the glory of eternal life.
Those are gifts to us that we can offer to others for Him. We do that by remembering Him and trying with all our hearts to do what He would do and love as He loves.
...you can give a great and wonderful Christmas if you remember the gifts God has given you and, as best you can, offer them to others as He would. That is the spirit of Christmas and of true happiness every day.
I testify that Jesus is the living Christ, in His sacred name, amen.
-President Henry B Eyring "The Gifts of Christmas." Christmas Devotional, December 2011
May we all be grateful for the Savior, sent here by a loving Father to help us be happy and to help us return back to him again. May we be grateful for the blessings the restored gospel of Jesus Christ brings us.
