A Special Christmas Gift!       [EDITED: "Tract"]       GP 3108       10/96

To you from Jesus,

       Christmas time is here again! For some people, Christmas is a time to have parties, eat lots of yummy food, and give presents to each other. That sounds like lots of fun, doesn't it? After all, everybody likes to receive presents. I like presents, too, don't you?

       You know what? I not only like to receive presents, but I have fun giving presents away to other people, because I like to make others happy. And this Christmas I have a special present, just for you! Do you want to know what it is?

       It's different from any other present you have ever received. It's special, because you can't buy it in a store, and no one can make it for you. My present for you will never get old or break down. It will never wear out, and you will never grow out of it. You can take it with you wherever you go, and you can play with it all the time. It's always exciting and never boring! Nobody can ever take it away from you, and it will last forever.

       Do you know what the best thing about this special present is? I've got plenty for everybody! All you kids around the world -- whoever you are, wherever you are -- My special gift is just for you. There's plenty to go around!

       Are you ready? Do you want to know what it is? My gift to you is the power of love! It's right here in My hand, and to get it, all you have to do is believe, reach out and grab hold of it. It's easy! Just take it, and it's yours, and you can begin using it today. I'll teach you how to use it. All you have to do is talk to Me -- any time, anywhere; out loud, or in your heart. Ask Me any question you want, and I'll answer you by whispering in your heart or mind.

       My special love power never runs out. I know you'll like it because it's really far out! It has the power to fulfill your dreams and to grant your deepest wishes! With the power of love you can touch the sky! Anything is possible! My love power can do anything good, and it can help you do anything good! Just take it and use it. It can mend anything, heal anything, and create anything. It can show you wonderful things and places!

       If you grab hold of My power of love, it will make you happy when you're sad. If you ever feel a little lonely, it will cheer you up. And when you feel so small, and a little lost or afraid in this great big world, or if you feel nobody understands you, or nobody will listen to what you have to say, My love power will show you how to make things all better.

       So don't miss out! If you want My special gift for you this Christmas, all you have to do is ask Me. Just say, "Yes, dear Jesus, I want Your power of love. Please come into my heart and fill my life with Your love. Teach me how to use it to be happy and to make others happy too. Thank You!"

       That's it! Just ask Me and it's yours! You're going to love it! I can't wait to teach you how to use My power of love! I love you. Have fun!

Your forever friend,
