As we anticipate the celebration of God’s greatest gift of love to us—His Son our Rescuer. Let’s prepare our hearts by loving those around us.
This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. 11 Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 12 No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. I John 4:10-12 NIV
What better way to celebrate the love we have from God, than sharing his love with others!
So today, lets be lovers of the people who God places in our path—grocery check out staff, the librarian, the trash collector, the neighborhood kids, the bus driver, the people in your own home. We can love them with our encouraging words, with prayer, with small gifts of appreciation, with service, or even with cookies.
God’s word says, if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete (or perfect) in us. It’s a win, win!
