"In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. He existed in the beginning with God. God created everything through him, and nothing was created except through Him. The Word gave life to everything that was created, and His life brought light to everyone."
John 1: 1-4
"For God loved the world so much that He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life."
John 3: 16
"You Came" by David Moffitt, Sue Smith, Travis Cottrell
"Before You came, we were stranded in dark, bearing wounded hearts without hope.
Desperate and in need, sinking low.
We cried for help, 'cause we could not save ourselves.
You heard; You saw; You knew and You felt it all.
You wept when you watched us fall, and You could not stay away.
And when You came, You were every hope fulfilled.
All that's good revealed, love divine.
And when You came, You were fellowship restored. You fed us with Your word, Bread of Life, when we were crushed underneath the weight of living.
And I am overcome; and I am overwhelmed.
I am breathless in Your presence.
I am humbled by Your love.
You could not stay away."
My heart is filled with such love for the Savior who, before the beginning of time, knew and chose to come. He knew before one word of creation was breathed into existence that we would fall. He knew the price He would have to pay to redeem us. And He chose to come. What love.
As we enter this Christmas season may our hearts be turned to the One who loved us so much He could not stay away.
