Today's Scripture John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son…
From the beginning of time, God planned and prepared a place for us to receive everything that we need for life now and eternally. He so loved us!
God always knew that He would do this for us. First Peter 1:20 assures us that, before God even laid the foundations of the world, His divine plan included Jesus. This was no afterthought.
Before He said, “Let there be light,” He understood that Adam would succumb to temptation and fall into sin. He knew that we would need a Savior.
Our sin would require a cleansing sacrifice, and the only remedy would be the blood spilled by His precious Son. He spoke all things into existence anyway.
At the right time, He revealed His plan in the sleepy village where the Treasure of Heaven came to earth. God did not send Him because we deserved it. He sent Him because He loved us.
Through a tiny baby born in Bethlehem, God demonstrated how absolutely, unconditionally, limitlessly, and incomprehensibly He loves us. Never doubt the depth of His love.
Whatever burdens have buried the beauty of Bethlehem in your life, roll them back to remember God has provided all you need. Never allow these words to fall on deaf ears: For God so loved…you.
