Advent

Advent , giving in love

John 3:16
“For God so loved the world, that he gave His Son”

John 3:16

That’s the kind of love the Father has. It is a giving love. It gives his most precious treasure—his Son.

Meditate on that this Advent. It was a very costly love. A very powerful love. A very rugged, painful love.

The meaning of Christmas is the celebration of this love. “God so loved . . .”

And wonder of wonders, God gives this costly love to an undeserving world of sinners, like us.”
