Christmas: The Season of Love
1. God’s Demonstration of Love is Universal. (John 3:16a, John 3:17, 1 Timothy 2:3-4)
1 Timothy 2:3-4, This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.
2. God’s Demonstration of Love is Costly. (John 3:16b, 1 John 2:2)
1 John 2:2, He himself is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours, but also for those of the whole world.
3. God’s Demonstration of Love is Redemptive. (John 3:16c)
4. God’s Demonstration of Love is Divisive. (John 3:17-21, Matthew 10:34-36)
Matthew 10:34-36, Don’t assume that I came to bring peace on the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I came to turn a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; and a man’s enemies will be the members of his household.
