Christmas is Nothing but Love

Love is a feeling of care and mercy towards people. When you care about people it means you are mindful of their needs. Mercy is compassion or kindness that causes us not to judge harshly. Therefore love is a feeling that causes us to care about people and show them kindness.

Bible Text: John  3:16
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.The Bible talks about four types of love. These four types of love in Greek words are:

  • Agape - is the highest of the four types of love in the bible. It defines God's immeasurable, incomparable love for human kind (Eph 3:18). Agape love is perfect, unconditional, sacrificial and pure.
  • Eros - This is sensual or romantic love. It is connected to physical attraction and sexual desires - The Bible limits erotic love to married people.
  • Storge - This is family love, affectionate bond that develops naturally between parents and children and brothers and sisters.
  • Philia is the type of love that most Christians practice towards each other. In other words, it is friendship.

God loved the world (people) so much that he gave away his only Son (Jesus) as means of stopping men from perishing in their sins. Sin is deadly because it separates people from God and kills them spiritually and physically. Satan entices people into sin to separate them from God so that they can remain in bondage to him. Jesus' mission was and is still to destroy what the devil had done ( 1Jn 3:8,). Through Christ, the lost relationship with God is restored with accompanying benefits and gifts.
These gifts are used for serving others and in the process of service, the servant himself is blessed. In 1 Corinthians chapter 12, Apostle Paul talks about wonderful spiritual gifts the Spirit of God distributes to his people for service. And in 1Cor 12:31 he concludes by saying that "But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way."Here Paul is saying, desire, long for these gifts. Why? Because they are important. They provide solutions for solving man's problem. Then he adds and say; "I will show you an excellent way". What is this excellent way?We find the answer in 1Cor 13:1-3.

1 Corinthians 13:1‭-‬3 NIV
1 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.
2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.
3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.

The excellent way here is love. Apostle Paul is saying that even if we posses powerful gifts of the tongue to the level of that of angels it profits us nothing if what we are uttering, prophesying, singing is done without care and regard for the people we are directing these utterances to. He says gifts of wisdom, knowledge, and faith will never benefit us if we use them without the love for those we are serving.

Even if we give everything we posses, including our lives without love we gain nothing. Love is care and compassion. So we see that as much as the gifts are important, if they are not channelled through love it will not profit us before God. Whatever God has given us whether they are spiritual, material, financial, our own life, etc.. are gifts to be channelled through love to benefit others and bring back rewards to us.

God is not focused on himself. Otherwise he wouldn't have sent his only Son for us. This Christmas let our focus not be on ourselves only, but on serving others through what God has gifted us with. It may be money, food, clothing etc. Share it with someone in need. It is this kind of service that will bring the real joy of Christmas to us. And this really should be our life style. If we continually do this then we would be serving as ambassadors for Christ by extending God's love to our world.

As we celebrate this Christmas, let us remember that God sent his only Son Jesus Christ to the world  because he loved us and did not want us destroyed but saved. Through Christ, God has given us back dominion and access to his life, power and blessings. This new life comes about when we are forgiven of our sins and our relationship with God is restored. That happens when we accept Jesus as our Lord and Saviour and the sacrifice he made on the cross as payment for our sins.

This is done at a personal level. If you have never made a commitment to Christ before or if you are a backslider, you can make that commitment now by saying aloud a prayer of commitment below:
" Dear Jesus, I come to you as a sinner. I repent of all my sins. Right now I invite you to come into my heart as my Lord and saviour. Amen.
If you have said that prayer from your heart, then you are saved by grace through faith in Christ. Find a bible teaching Church near you where you can grow spiritually.
