Hi everyone. I’m Sherry Douglas with Heart-Song. Have you noticed we use the word LOVE for a variety of circumstances? We LOVE chocolate cake. We LOVE the new song we heard or the new clothes we just bought. We also LOVE our family and friends. LOVE. We use the word rather loosely for the vital role it has in our lives. In just one sentence, 1 John 4:19 tells us why we are able to LOVE, “We LOVE because he (meaning God) first LOVED us.” Our ability to LOVE people is the direct result of God LOVING us. With Jesus’ birthday celebration only a few days away, let’s delight in God’s extravagant LOVE by reading and listening to additional scriptures.
Give thanks to the God of heaven. His LOVE endures forever.
1 John 3:1a
See what great LOVE the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!
My command is this: LOVE one another as I have LOVED you.
And finally, the Scripture that most clearly describes God’s LOVE for us.
For God so LOVED the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Merry Christmas, everyone! Let’s live, and LOVE, the way we want to be remembered.
See you next week.
