1 John 4:10-13 NASB
¹⁰In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
¹¹Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
¹²No one has seen God at any time; if we love one another, God abides in us, and His love is perfected in us. ¹³By this we know that we abide in Him and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit.
In various countries, Christmas is not only celebrated on December 25, but also on December 26. But that is not the case all over the world, because in many countries they only celebrate it on only one day. Some countries even celebrate it on January 6.
Does it matter when you celebrate God’s Gift to us?
No for in fact nobody knows the exact date of His birth.
You can even celebrate it in the middle of summer.
It is all about realizing the turn history has taken since the greatest demonstration of God’s love has been shown to us.
God became man!!
Incomprehensible isn’t it?
What was in it for God to send His Son to us?
The only argument I can think of is,
▪︎ That that’s the way how He would save His creatures.
▪︎ That that’s the way how He brought atonement.
▪︎ But most of all, we are the ones who receive the benefit of it
It was love, selfless love.
I have no other word for it.
