Passage: 1 John 4:7-19
Service Type:

We often think of love in purely emotional terms, and that does us a complete disservice. Love is so much more than a warm, fuzzy feeling. 1 John 4 tells us (twice!) that God is love. That’s something that most of us can support. God is love. But the Bible also confirms that Jesus and God are One. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. (John 1:1, 14a) If all you received for Christmas this year was love - would that be enough? Love is the basis for the entire Christmas event. You cannot find it online, at the mall or in a catalog. However, love is really not that difficult to find. It is in every act of kindness, in all giving and charity, you will find it in the memories you cherish, and it comes alive each time you open your heart to the wonderful old story of a baby born in Bethlehem.
