The whole meaning of Christmas can be explained in one little four letter word…LOVE. God sent a gift of pure love to us that first Christmas. Love descended from heaven to be born of a virgin. Love lay in the scratchy hay of a manger in a meagre barn in Bethlehem. All of God’s love was robed in the delicate skin of a baby and wrapped in swaddling clothes. Tonight we reflect on the magnitude of love that was made manifest in Jesus.
Beneath the stars, surrounded by all of the hosts of heaven, Love came. Welcomed by an earthly mother and father, shepherds and wise men, love came.
May your Christmas this year be filled to the brim with meaning, love and thankfulness ready to be spilled out in the lives of others.
