“The Ultimate Christmas Emotion”
The fact that God loves the whole world is a New Testament concept that begins with Christ arriving a Christmas. Nowhere in the Old Testament does it say that God loved the "whole" world. It is implied but never stated. This revolutionary idea or ultimate Christmas emotion springs to life with Jesus coming for Jews and Gentiles - for saints and sinners. "Love Devine, all loves excelling, Joy of heaven to earth come down!" The great Ken Bible carol says, "Love has come - a light in the darkness! Love explodes in the Bethlehem skies. See, all heaven has come to proclaim it; Love! Love! Born unto you, a Savior! Love! Love! God loves you, He really does.
