“For God loved the world in this way: He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.
John 3:16 HCSB, Holman Christian Standard Bible
“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.”John Piper
