the light of love
This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins (1John 4:9-11)
- The story of Christmas begins with God, loving us before we love Him.
- Imagine God as a parent who loves and accepts you, like a child needing a home.
- How does it feel to be loved like this?
God of love, burn bright within me, Jesus, draw me into your light. Spirit of love, light the way ahead of me. Help me know your love this Christmas and share it with those around me.
This Advent, each time you see Christmas lights, thank God that He loves us before we love Him.
