LOVE LASTS

 
"This is My Beloved..." —Matthew 3:17
 

On the last day of Christmas, my true Love, Jesus, gave to me a deeper life in the Spirit. On the last day of Christmas, my true Love, the Holy Spirit, cried out in my heart "Abba" ("Father") (Gal 4:6; Mt 3:17). On the last day of Christmas, my true Love, God the Father, revealed Jesus to me in a new way (Lk 10:22) and gave me an even deeper life in the Spirit (Jn 14:16). On the last day of Christmas, I was caught in the crossfire of the Trinity's love. The Father spoke; Jesus saved; the Spirit descended.

Are you ready to "grasp fully, with all the holy ones, the breadth and length and height and depth of Christ's love, and experience this love which surpasses all knowledge, so that you may attain to the fullness of God Himself"? (Eph 3:18-19) Are you ready to be loved as the Father loves Jesus? (Jn 15:9) On this last day of Christmas, will you let the love of God be poured out in your heart through the Holy Spirit? (Rm 5:5)

"God is Love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him" (1 Jn 4:16). Christmas is all about God's love. Make this the day, the year, and the life of love.

 
Prayer: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, I live in Your love (Jn 15:10). Thank You for the Christmas season.
Promise: "He went about doing good works and healing all who were in the grip of the devil, and God was with Him." —Acts 10:38
Praise: Praise Jesus, the Father's beloved Son in Whom He is well pleased! (Mt 3:17)
