We celebrate Christmas with bright lights and gifts for one another. I have seen some pretty awesome demonstrations of our expressions of love at Christmastime. But truly we must have our heart’s eyes opened to see the grand display our God daily places for our enjoyment. There is no greater love than the love of the heavenly Father when He sent His Son Jesus to become as we are so we can become as He is.
The Grand Display
A grand display is set before you as you gaze about.
The majesty of God’s creation His love shouts.
From the diligent little ant to the twinkling shooting star above,
All of its wonders tell of God’s love.
Every uniquely formed snowflake, each finger print too,
All are a great display to God’s love prove.
Majestic, high, wide and deeper than you know,
Is the span of God’s hand to care for every soul.
There is no demonstration of love as great as when,
The Father sent Jesus to die for man’s sins.
In the small babe born in Bethlehem,
Was God’s greatest display of His love for man.
Jesus would grow to live and to die to pay the price,
Needed to purchase the soul of every life.
To celebrate His birth is to also celebrate His death.
To truly rejoice is also a great gift.
As you offer the Father your heart again on this day,
This is yet another grand demonstration of love portrayed.
1 John 3:1
See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.
