SECOND WEEK OF ADVENT – DECEMBER 10, 2017
SCRIPTURE: John 3:16
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.”
At Christmas we remember the great love of God in giving the gift of Jesus to live amongst us and lay down his life for us so that we can have new life through trusting him. We can take comfort from knowing that he is present with us no matter what we are going through in our lives and will carry us safely through to eternal life. When we have experienced love as great as this, it should spur us on to share that love with others in our lifestyles, words and actions.
PRAYER: Thank you Jesus for your presence with us. Please show us how we can share your love with others during this Advent season. Amen.
