In our final installment of our Advent 2012 series we look at the topic of Love.
Let's read John 3:16
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.During the last 3 posts, we talked a great deal about what Christ brought us and what we received because of Christ coming to us. He brought us Hope, so now we have Hope. With Him came Peace, so now we have that Peace which surpasses all understanding. He came to bring Joy, so now we can experience true and everlasting Joy. But Love goes beyond all of those. He did not just bring Love....He is Love.
Love is the entire reason that He came to us. It is source of Hope, Peace and Joy. Love is what set everything else in motion. We were given the greatest present of all time. Not because we earned, paid for it, or even thought we might need it. But God, in His great plan to demonstrate His love for us, sent His Son to carry out that Love. Christmas is a time to reflect on that precious truth.
Love conquers all things. No matter where you might be or what you might be going through, Let the love of Christ renew you this Christmas Season.
Thanks for reading everyone! Merry Christmas!
