Today has been the 4th Sunday of Advent. This morning at our church we lighted the last purple candle which is known as the Angel Candle or the Candle of Love.
1 John 4:7-9: “Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from GOD; and everyone who loves is born of GOD and knows GOD. The one who does not love does not know GOD, for GOD is love. By this, the love of GOD was manifested in us, that GOD has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him.”
GOD has chosen to share His love with EVERY person. On Christmas Day GOD performed one of the most incredible acts the world has ever witnessed! Think about it! GOD became a man and pitched His tent among us! WOW!!! The theological term is “incarnation” – the divine perfect spirit GOD became a part of the created human world in the form of a baby born in humble surroundings. I continue to be absolutely astounded by it. But it didn’t stop there. GOD invites us to participate in His demonstration of love.
Amidst all the family traditions, decorations and activities that Christmas holds, may we fix our hearts upon GOD’s great demonstration of love that took place on that first Christmas day. May we praise GOD for inviting us to participate with Him. And may we walk in faith as we cooperate with HOLY SPIRIT and submit our flesh to Him that we may love GOD with all our heart, soul and mind and that we might love our neighbor as we love self (Matthew 22:36-40). This is GOD’s great command. It is the ultimate purpose of Christmas!
Amazed by GOD Incarnate!
