God So Loved
“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” (John 3:16).
Scripture Focus:John 3:16-21
When Immanuel came down from heaven, divinely conceived in the womb of a young virgin, no mere infant's cry came forth. His birthing wail shook the foundations of the universe like a mighty war cry that filled every hellish demon with terror. Love Incarnate had come to wrest the keys of death from Satan and open wide the doors of paradise for all who would believe.
Love was made manifest in the form of this newborn Babe who had come from the Father filled with grace and truth. This Immanuel had turned away from the glories of heaven to be cradled in the straw of a wretched animal stall because God had judged human souls to be precious.
As this humble beginning unfolded in Bethlehem, some shepherds nearby were given a glimpse of the cosmic significance of Immanuel's birth. An angel of the Lord appeared to them in radiant glory and countless heavenly hosts appeared, exalting God. The shepherds quickly found the Babe of Bethlehem and praised God for the things they had seen and heard.
Insight: Love came down from heaven one holy night in the form of a Babe who has won our hearts.
