Christmas Bible Reading Plan – Day 26

1 John 4:9-10

(by Jason)

It’s my birthday! That is all…

… no just kidding! As I mourn for my twenties, todays passage helps us look at why Jesus came in the first place. It’s all about love. Anything that God ever does is about love. Of course He helps us with discipline, self-control, patience, but the foundation of it all is love. The mere existence of Jesus is because God loves us so much that He wanted a way out for us.

God loved us, and showed us love before we even had a chance to show Him how much we love Him. The thought can often seem so big and daughting, but it doesn’t make it any less true. Love might be a very strong word for some people, but have a think today about what it really means that God loves you. As an individual.
