I Love You

A father was walking one night with his son. The son asked, “What is God like?” The father picked up his son and whispered in his ear, “I love you.” Then the father said, “That is what God is like.”
More than two thousand years ago, God showed the world what He was like. He sent His only Son, Jesus, to be born in Bethlehem. That was God’s way of telling the world how much He loves them.
Verse 9 of our Bible Reading says, “This is how God showed his love to us: God sent his only Son into the world to give us life through him.” Jesus grew up on earth and then died to accept the punishment for our sins. But Jesus did not stay dead — He arose! Because of that, we can have life with God forever!
God continues to say “I love you” to the world through His Word and His children. Be sure to share the Good News about Jesus with someone you see today.
