This is Love

December 24, 2010 — 1 Comment

Nativity scenes, holiday cards, and carols remind us of Christ’s descent to Earth. What is often missed in these Christmas novelties, is the fact that for Christ

the cradle and the cross are inextricably linked.

Not only did Christ give up heavenly blessings for Earthly travails, but He did it knowing that the end result would lead Him to a gruesome death.

We are hesitant to sacrifice when we don’t know what the outcome would be, let alone when we know there will be pain involved.

He lovingly give up all that was rightly His, even though He knew the end result would be bad for Him, because He knew the outcome would be good for us.

May we increasingly love like this.

May we sacrifice our convenience for another’s benefit. May we give up our rights for another’s blessing. And may we do what is best for others, even if it cost us.

For this is what Love did.
