Reflections: “God’s Gift”

John 3:16

16 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.

The most famous verse in the Bible speaks of God’s love. As we wind down the Advent and Christmas season, we end by focusing on the amazing gift of God’s love, personified by Jesus’ birth in the manger. This was and is the answer to the prayers of so many believers, and today we know God’s love through the life, ministry, and mission of our Lord and Savior. How appropriate that we end this season by learning about God’s love, specifically how to love others as God loved us.   

Reflection Questions:

Please read and think about each question as it applies to your Christian journey with Christ.

  • What do you believe is the connection between God’s love and evangelism? How do we spread the message of God’s love?
  • What are some ways you have felt God’s love this year, and helped spread God’s love for others?   

Prayer:

Father, as we end the Advent and Christmas season, help us apply the lessons of hope, peace, joy, and love to our Christian walks. May we strive to become better servants as we learn more about your incredible love for us, and may we rely on your love to strengthen and guide us during life’s difficult storms. Amen.
