Christmas, God’s Love Letter to the World.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
This week we will be looking at four things about the Messiah, Yeshua, Jesus.
God is love.
God tells us of the coming Messiah, where He will be born, when He would come, and why He would come.
God has a book.
Our response to what God has done
God loved us. How should we love others?
“Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.” (1 John 4:11)
“Love suffereth long, and is kind; love envieth not; love vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.8 Love never faileth: (1 Corinthians 13:4-8a)
If you know God’s love, share it with others. If you are not saved, this would be a perfect time to accept God’s provision for your sin.
