This week we have been lighting the candle of Love. We want to reflect on God’s love during Advent because…
His love is perfect. His love never leaves us, never fails us, never ends.
God came down to us because He is Love.
Love came down to us.
Love came down as a little baby born in a simple stable – barren of basic comforts, yet filled with the presence of a King.
“While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was not room for them in the inn.” Luke 2:6-7
Love came down to lowly shepherds – filling the darkness of night with the Light from above.
“An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them…” Luke 2:9
Love came down not only to show His love to us, but to show us how to love.
“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God…” 1 John 4:7
“We love because he first loved us.” 1 John 4:16
Love came down to die so that we may live.
“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.” 1 John 4:9
Love came down for you and for me – sinners, unworthy – yet loved and wanted and deemed worthy through His love.
“You, Lord, are forgiving and good, abounding in love to all who call to you.” Psalm 86:5
Wherever you are His love is there.
He does not hide His love from you.
He does not keep His love from you.
Love came down – freely given because of His love for you and for me.
“And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love…” 1 John 4:16
May you know His love this Christmas.
Living thru faith,
