On this fourth Sunday in Advent, we are only a few days away from the celebration of Christ’s birth. It is fitting that we reflect upon God’s great love for us. Our Maker, the Creator of the heavens and earth, could have left us to our own designs and suffering, but because of His love for us, He created a way for us to be in communion with Him forever. Rather than being separated by a chasm of sin and evil, He bridged the gap between our brokenness and His holiness with the gift of His Son.
“God showed how much he loved us by sending His one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through Him” (1 John 4:9).
