One of the bedrock passages of faith in Jesus is found in this verse:
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son Jesus.”
— John 3:16
God loved us so deeply that he put his amazing plan into motion at Christmas with Jesus. Jesus came to this world, put on flesh, and was born in a manger. This was God’s way to reconcile us and bring us into right relationship with Him. God loved us so much that He gave all He had; His Son!
Jesus did the same. He constantly displayed the love of God to those who were hurting or marginalized in some way. People like you and I. Whom did He love? Jesus loved the Lonely, the Overwhelmed, the Vulnerable and the Empty. In fact, Jesus loved us so much that He too gave. Jesus would go to the cross and give His life so that we can have a relationship with our Creator.
As Jesus followers, we are called to do the same thing. We are called to love others and give away the love of Christ in very tangible ways.
