Merry Christmas!

For God -- the greatest giver

so loved -- the greatest motive

the world -- the greatest need

that He gave -- the greatest act

His only begotten Son -- the greatest gift

that whosoever -- the greatest invitation

believes in Him -- the greatest opportunity

should not perish -- the greatest deliverance

but have everlasting life -- the greatest joy.

If this is original work then I applaud your creativity and skill. If it is not then I applaud your choice in things to copy.

Absolutly beautiful. God bless you in all that you do.

No, this isn't an original -- my pastor shared it one night after our church's Christmas program, and he said he read it in a book years ago. Doesn't it have a powerful message?

Andrea said...

That is soooooo beautiful, Bethany! Thanks so much for posting that. Such a fitting perspective on that verse and the season!

God truly IS GREAT! There are many great things you can find through Him.

Hi, Bethany. Our church group is praying for you. I hope the Lord uses you mightily tomorrow!

I appreciated that "mini-exposition" of John 3:16. It's such a great verse. I've heard sermons on it, memorized and taught it to kids and it's amazing how much truth can be found in one little sentence! There are so many ways to look at it. God's word is truly boundless! Thanks for sharing!

Wow! That is absolutely profound. I really like that! What a beautiful thought.

Merry Christmas to you and yours! (((hugs))) from Wisconsin! I love you, Bethany!

That is a really good post, Bethany. It is awesome how little things like that can impact people's lives. Sometimes, we forget about the important thing at Christmas time -- always good to have a reminder, thanks.
