This is love:
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. John 3:16 NKJV
Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. John 15:13 NKJV
Born to die so that all who believe may live. God gave us Jesus – willingly gave us His Son to die for our sins, so that we can live. Jesus willingly went to the cross for us. That is pure love.
And as I pray and thank God for this precious gift, and for loving me, I must ask myself: would I lay down my life for Him? Would I lay down the plans I have made for my life, to pick up His plan for me? Something to ponder in the coming days…
Son of God, love’s pure light…
Merry Christmas! May you and your be filled to overflowing with the love of Jesus today and always.
