Love Came Down: Two

th-1

The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love. Galatians 5:6

A picture of God’s love from Mike Mason’s The Gospel According to Job:

“Love is not bait for the gospel; love is the gospel. Love is not a means towards some end; love is means and end together. . . In the Kingdom of God nothing moves, nothing happens, without love. In churches many things happen because of human goals, programs, bureaucratic necessity, idealism, private fantasy, or neurosis. But it is not so with God. God has no plan, no program, no agenda except love. That is why He had no other recourse but to send us His only Son Jesus Christ, who on the one hand loved God His Father with a perfect love, and who on the other hand loved mankind no less. These were the two hands that were stretched wide on Calvary. . .This is the dreadful, fearsome love of God, the love that will never let us go.”  Mike Mason

Experience God’s love this Christmas. 

In a town of David, not so near to spring,
At the heart of love, there came a lovely thing.
Straw Against the Chill, Bob Franke

    What a great reminder about the place of love also in our lives on earth! If all people experience from us is the “can’t’s”, why would they be drawn to the Bible? Love in action speaks so loudly and immediately to people that they will glorify the One in Who loved us first, maybe not at first and of course, not always. But they will have no excuse not to know His love through us.

    A blessed Advent season to you and yours,
