Have all the presents been opened? Think hard. Is there one that remains unopened? "No," you say. "Don't you see that there is not one left under the tree?" Ah! It is a present that you cannot see, but one that you can feel in your heart. Do you know what it is? Many of us know, yet some do not. On a First Baptist Church bulletin in Syracuse, New York, it was written "There was a gift for each of us left under the tree of life two thousand years ago by Him whose birthday we celebrate today. Some have left the packages unclaimed. Some have accepted the gift and carry it around, but have failed to remove the wrappings and look inside to discover the hidden splendor. The packages are all alike: in each is a scroll on which is written, 'All that the Father hath is thine'. Take and live!" Is there an unopened present under your tree this Christmas?
