God's Three Gifts Most Christians know the three gifts of the Magi to Jesus were gold, frankincense, and myrrh. But, did you know that the angel of the Lord also gave Joseph the assurance that God is giving three gifts in sending Jesus? God's three gifts in Jesus are: 1) a Son of David who fulfills God's promise of a King who will reign forever; 2) a child named Jesus who is God's Son, conceived through the Holy Spirit; and 3) a son named Jesus, the Great Deliverer, who will save his people from their sins. As Jesus' younger brother would later write, God is the Father of "every good and perfect gift" (James 1:17). There is no gift more precious or far-reaching than the gift of Jesus, God's Son, and our Savior.
