“For God so loved the world that He gave….” {John 3:16}

“For God so loved the world that He gave….” {John 3:16} Those are simple but powerful words. In the middle of this busy season, this little verse in the middle of the book of John reminds us that Christmas is really all about love.

God knew we had a need that we could never meet. He saw our brokenness and our sin. But rather than turning away, He gave. When God sent Christ, He set an example for all of us. The heart of Christmas begins with an amazing God who offered His Son to the world even though we didn’t deserve His love.

When we truly give as God intended, we reflect His heart and remind the world how one small Gift in a manger changed everything.

What’s one way your life has been touched by the gift of Jesus this past year? For example, He may have shown you His love, answered a prayer or seen you through a difficult time.
