Rejoicing in Jesus’ Birth

imageHow Much Does God Love the World?

God So Loved The World That He Gave…

HIMSELF

in the body of a frail newborn named Jesus.

But…why would He do that?

He came in our form so that we could better relate to Him.

So that He could teach us about Himself.

So that He could show us what real love looks like.

So that He could become the ultimate sacrifice and die in our place.

So that He could redeem us, and give us eternal Life in Heaven.

He gave us Jesus so that we would never have to wonder if He loves us.

So…just how much does God love us?

With all His heart.

It is fun to celebrate the Christmas holiday season with all the bright colors, music, and spirit of giving.

But let’s never, ever, forget the great sacrifice God made on our behalf.

HE GAVE THE FIRST GIFT

WHEN HE GAVE US HIMSELFimage

John 3:16   For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him will not perish, but have everlasting life.

Thank you God for loving us that much.

  1. The most beautiful way to start my Christmas Eve, absolutely lovely. Christmas blessings to you and your loved ones🎄🎆

  2. Another precious post Elizabeth … words and pictures beautiful.

    • Thank you, poetrycottage. I can just imagine the eyes of God as He lovingly gazed at His baby boy. What love must have poured out from them, but then as scripture says Simeon told Mary that her heart would be pierced, I imagine so was God’s heart then when He thought of that fateful future day on Calvary.
      That picture is especially dear to me because the little baby looks a lot like my son when he was tiny.
      May your Christmas Day be blessed!
