John 3:16 – 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
I recently told my church family that Christmas is an event driven by love, executed in grace. When is the last time you really stopped and thought about John 3:16? Yes, it is the most popular bible verse in society, yes, we may be able to quote it, but when was the last time you actually thought about it? This verse is the perfect scripture for Christmas because it tells of God’s love for us that He would send Jesus to this earth as an infant (the love part of Christmas). It then tells us that through His grace we can be saved (the grace part of Christmas). If you miss these two key components of Christmas, then you miss Christmas. More importantly, you miss why Jesus came.
I pray that you will remember the true meaning of Christmas this year — God’s grace executed in God’s love.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
