How Do You Spell Love this Advent Season…Jesus

advent4 w ljt

The Fourth week of Advent we light the candle of Love. For as John 3:16 so lovingly proclaims, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

I love what 1 John 4:7 says about love, “let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.”  Friend, our world more than ever needs love.  Let us light this Love candle for our world today, spreading the love of God to everyone.  Because, “ Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.” 1 John 4:11.

For this Fourth Week of Advent I have eight Bible verses of Love for your hearts.

  1. Corinthians 13:13:  “”And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
  2. Ephesians 4:2-3:  “Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.”
  3. Colossians 3:14:  “And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.”
  4. 1 John 4:19:  “We love because He first loved us.”
  5. John 15:9-10:  “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love.”
  6. John 15:12-13:  “My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”
  7. Psalm 86:15:  “But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.”
  8. Romans 5:8:  “God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

And during the busyness of this Christmas season friend, let’s remember 1 Corinthians 13:4-8  with our families, friends, co-workers, and retailers:

Collage 2018-10-21 19_07_41Lord, Thank you for loving us and sending your only Son to save us from our sins.  May we be stewards of your love this seasons and always.  In Christs name, Amen.

I hope you have enjoyed this little Advent series.  We will light the Christ Candle tomorrow on Christmas Eve.  I can’t wait, I hope you will come back to celebrate the birth  our Lord and Savior, Jesus.

    I have truly enjoyed your Advent series. It brought new meaning of Christmas in my life. Thank you. I spell Love, by Jesus being born so He could give His life for us and that we can have eternal life with Him.

    I think overall your blog is on the right path :). Somethings that may be beneficial some pictures had a really scripty font and that may be hard to read for some readers.

    Feel free to use different backgrounds for pictures on posts unless they all are connected to the same series. It gives a little more pop. Some sites you can use for free images are pexels, unspalsh and pixabay. Canva is a free program you can make feature images and other images on as well. 🙂

    You not only focus on scripture but connect it to life and your own experience, which is great!!!!! 🙂 A lot of bloggers struggle with this and you arent.

    Just keep walking forward and pointing to Christ. Give Him your all 🙂 .
