For this is how much God loved the world - He gave his one and only, unique Son as a Gift.
We are guaranteed to have the Spirit of Jesus live within us if we just cry out to God asking for forgiveness of all that we have done wrong.
Intense, impassioned, ardent, fervent, fervid, zealous, heartfelt, eager, excited! These are just a few more words to help us understand how passionately God loves us.
As a Christian I am called upon by Jesus to take the Good News of who He is to those that don’t yet know Him.
Sometimes seeing really is believing. It’s not enough to be told something, but you have to see and experience it for yourself for it to be true.
This Christmas, if you’re a Christian, choose not to be silent. Of all the times of the year in which we have an opportunity to declare our faith and our love of Jesus, Christmas is the big one.
This Christmas as we celebrate His birth, remember also the powerful sacrifice that Jesus made on our behalf.
Jesus knew what was to happen to Him, he knew that pain and separation from His Father was on the horizon, yet He didn’t run from His responsibility. From the moment of Jesus’s birth the Divine redemptive plan was nearing it’s end.
