What would the world be like without love? All motives would be hate-filled. No peace. No joy. No kindness. I can’t imagine it, can you?
Love changes everything. In love, God sent His only begotten Son into this world. Jesus took on our humanity so He could suffer for us. If not for this love in action, darkness and despair would conquer the world and our hearts.
Last night my husband and I watched one of our favorite Christmas movies – A Song For The Season.
At the end of the movie, the music teacher and a girl she coaxed out of her shell together sing “Love Changes Everything.” It always reaches into my heart and lights up the dark places, especially the lyrics: “In the dark of winter, I still can sing, because God has sent the Baby King.”
Jesus came as the Light Who dispels all the darkness. Because of this miracle we still may experience hope in the midst of despair, light in the midst of darkness, and love in the midst of chaos. Isn’t this just too amazing to comprehend? THANK YOU, JESUS!
I hope the light of Jesus will shine into your hearts this Christmas giving peace in the midst of any trouble and strife in your life, light in the midst of confusion, and love in the midst of any hurts or betrayals eating at your heart.
