This is the foundation of our faith: God loved us so much that He sent His Son to save us from our sins.
Christ came to be a gift of Love – tangible, accessible and real for each of us. Jesus desired to be Love in a world that did not welcome Him.
Many did not recognize Him, few saw His glory and rejoiced… and His days on earth were echoes of His arrival.
Even after all He went through in His life, Jesus prayed for us, thinking of us in His final moments…
I am in them and you are in me. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me.
– John 17:23 NLT
“We started from Him and will end with Him, this is the love of Christ”* given to us at Christmas and fulfilled in His sacrifice.
