When you go looking for love you find it in the most unexpected places…and if we are talking about finding love in the Christmas story…our minds automatically go to the more obvious and common expressions of love. We could easily and rightly say that Advent is the time John 3:16 became a physical reality. That God expressed his love for us by giving us his only begotten son. He loved us so deeply that he wrapped himself in human flesh and became a baby in a manger. He came to live and die in our place so that we might have relationship with the father. Whoever believes upon him have can have eternal life.
Today, we begin the four-week journey known as Advent that will culminate with our candlelight Christmas Eve Service. The next four weeks is also a journey toward the most commercialized holiday in the world. And…it’s this commercialization of Christmas that led us as a church to turn our hearts back toward the celebration of Advent.
