LOVE – Advent Week 4 Christmas Card

The Bible says God loves us, but since God is invisible, sometimes his love is hard for us to comprehend. How can we know that a God we can’t see or touch really cares?

God solved this problem 2000 years ago when He became a visible, flesh-and-blood human. God came to Bethlehem in the form of baby Jesus and demonstrated the depths of His love.

And how much does God love us?

God loves us so much that He left his glorious place of authority, surrounded by swirling galaxies and adoring angels, to live among us on Earth.

God loves us so much that He humbled Himself and became one of us,

experiencing:

  • the lure of temptation
  • the pain of betrayal and abandonment
  • and the heartache of loss,

so we’d know He could relate to all our issues.

 

God loves us so much that He went around showing His loving ways and healing touch to everyone who would listen—from laborers to lepers, from prostitutes to priests.

And ultimately, God came to remove the barrier between us, so we could be reunited with Him forever.

The Bible says that God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, Jesus, that whoever believes in him will not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16).

This fourth week of Advent, we remember the “Love” that motivated Jesus to come to earth so we can have an abundant life with Him.

  1. We say the word love, but I don’t think we’ll ever comprehend God’s love. Amazing love, amazing grace!

    • Yes, God’s love is so big, so accepting, so unconditional it’s hard for us to grasp. But the more we learn about it and let it sink in, the more it heals our heart. Thanks for your encouraging comments!
