The Second Sunday of Advent: Love

Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

John 15:13

I shared a similar picture last week, but it fits so well with today’s post that I had to share this one this week.

If you come from a more traditional church background, you probably will be lighting the second candle on the church’s advent wreath.  Today, is the second Sunday of Advent.  Many people around the world will be talking about love.  Today’s verse above expresses an extreme love.  Christmas is way more than presents and a baby in a manger.  Christmas is about a God who loves us so much that He would send His Son to pay the penalty for us on the cross.  May you know God’s love this season in a deeper way.

As we go through this time of preparing for Christmas, may we also share God’s love with those around us.

How have you experienced God’s love this week?

Today, I’m hooking up with The Sunday Community and Fresh Brewed Sundays.  Hop on over here and here to see what I’m talking about.
