You might wonder what is meant by the hidden gift of Christmas. We all know that Christmas is all about presents, trees, ornaments, baked goodies, parties, family get-togethers and on and on. Oh, how we all enjoy those things. So how could there be anything hidden?

No matter how much many people want to take Christ out of “Christ”mas, it is impossible to do so because . . . 

Christmas begins with “Christ”.

Christ died on the cross for forgiveness of our sins, thus the cross of Christ is the hidden gift. “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23Romans 6:23
English: American Standard Version (1901) - ASV

23 For the wages of sin is death; but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

What a gift that was! God displayed his great love for us by sending Jesus Christ, born in a stable and placed in a humble manger on that first Christmas morn, to one day die for us. Thank God for the cross.
