God Demonstrates His
Own Love For Us
"But God demonstrates His own love for us in this:
While we were still sinners, Christ died for us."
Romans 5:8 (NIV)
This passage sums up the true meaning of Christmas. Yes, we try to demonstrate our love to others by giving gifts and possibly serving in special ways during this time. Yet, if we are honest, rarely do we do this for individuals that we conclude are evil or unworthy of our gifts or time. This is where that first word “but” in this passage shows the contrast between our hearts and that of God’s in demonstrating love.
