Tuesday, Fourth Week of Advent: Love
December 23, 2014


God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only son so that whosoever believes in him may not be lost, but have eternal life.  John 3:16

Love is a powerful word and I might add, a beautiful word.  We love our family, our friends, our relatives and even our pets.  Sometimes it’s very hard to love someone who has been unkind to us or said unkind things about us.  We are all brothers and sisters in Christ.

We muse on miracles who look
     But lightly on a rose!
Who gives it fragrance or the glint
     Of glory that it shows?

Who holds it here between the sky
     And earth’s rain-softened sod?
The miracle of one pale rose
     Is proof enough of God.

God is love.  Whover lives in love lives in God, and God in him.   1 John 4:16

Prayer:   The Lord’s Prayer
