The Gift of Love

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!


1 John 4:9

This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.


He was one of Jesus’ “Top Three” Disciples. His name was “John the Beloved.” If anyone knew, he knew. In this short verse, John simply states the one reason we know God our Heavenly Father really loves us. John the Beloved said, “God, our loving Father in heaven, sent us His ONE and only Son Jesus, that we may have eternal life through HIM (Jesus)!”


I don’t always do this … BUT … It’s CHRISTMAS! There comes a point where the writer of a daily devotional has to acknowledge the DAY. How can I just go through the motions when everything on MY planet relates to Jesus’ birthday? Every Imam in the world, every prince, every king, every president, every atheist, and every other EARTHLING, marks their own birthday by Jesus’ birthday. He came because God the Father LOVED us. Some of us give gifts because we love applause. Some of us give gifts to impress those who may give us more back. Some of us give gifts out of obligation. But our Father in Heaven gave us … “The Best Gift!” His gift ensured us eternal life after this life. But before the eternal part, we have “Abundant Life” right here, right now! That’s why those of us who have it always say on this day, and leading up to this day … “MERRY CHRISTMAS!”


Dear Jesus,

Because of You, every day is MERRY and every NEW YEAR is Happy! Amen
