Tonight, we celebrate the reality that Love has come. Jesus came to earth as love personified, so that all might have life.
This is Good News of great joy!
At the same time, we live in the tension of the already and the not yet. We long for Christ’s return as we rest in the promise that the fullness of His love is already available to us. It comes without qualifiers or prerequisites and is freely extended to all.
We pray that this devotional has drawn you nearer to God in your own life, while also compelling you to extend Christ’s hope, peace, joy and love to the frontier—the more than 2 billion people worldwide who lack access to the Gospel. As we rejoice in the arrival of our Savior this Christmas Eve, let us intercede for those still waiting to hear about Immanuel: the God who is with us.
