Pondering Scripture 1 John 4:9 ESV
“In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent His only Son into the world, so that we might live through Him.”
My take: Yes, it is advent season as we celebrate our saviours birth. I know naysayers shout He couldn’t not have been born on December 25. Yet being born again, I like and hope to remember and celebrate Him each and every day until we are united in person.
Yes, God in His massive love did what only He could in a marvelous unique way. He jumped right in the mess!
Note: Did you see the word ‘might’ in there? That word grabs my attention big time because of might NOT.
I chellenge myself and you to ponder this today: How do we live through Him?
That sure is the key! Through Him! By Him! To Him! All Him! Through Him we live and have our purposeful being!
That my friends is why Christmas is awesome! God is love! Baby Jesus is full grown!
My prayer: Lord, Merry Christmas!
