A Christmas Meditation on Love



It is Christmas ...


A time to remember the gift of love:


“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish, but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)


A time to remember the sacrifice of love:


“We know love by this, that He laid down His life for us.” (1 John 3:16)


A time to remember the command to love:


“I am giving you a new commandment, that you love one another; just as I have loved you, that you also love one another.” (John 13:34)


A time to remember the challenges of love:


“Keep fervent in your love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins.” (1 Peter 4:8)


A time to remember the warning of love:


“The one who does not love remains in death.” (1 John 3:14)


A time to remember the nature of love:


“Love is patient, love is kind, it is not jealous; love does not brag, it is not arrogant. It does not act disgracefully, it does not seek its own benefit; it is not provoked, does not keep an account of a wrong suffered, it does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; it keeps every confidence, it believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” (1 Corinthians 13:4-7)


A time to remember the practicality of love:


“Let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth.” (1 John 3:18)


A time to remember the triumph of love:


“Love never fails ... now faith, hope, and love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” (1 Corinthians 13:8,13)
