GODíS GREAT LOVE! Stella Dhinakaran

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.    (John 3:16)

The Dhinakarans Dearly beloved, the month of December is a fabulous month. Take heart! As you enter into this month with Jesus, you will receive Godís blessings overflowing in your life.

The Scripture illuminates that Godís love for us is so great that He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die for us while we were still sinners. Yes! God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16). In the book of Isaiah 53:10-11, we read, Jesus was crushed for our sake. Paul the Apostle says, Jesus loved us so much that He gave His own life for us on the cross (Galatians 2:20). Yes, God was brutally beaten and bruised on the cross so that we would receive the abundant blessings of God in our lives.

Most of us think, celebrating Christmas is just decorating our homes with colorful lights, Santa Claus, and beautiful trees. But the joy of celebrating Christmas is giving our life into the hands of Jesus and living a life that would please Him.

Therefore my beloved,look at the cross from where the love of God is shown through the shedding of His blood and through the sufferings He took upon Himself, and rest assure that God is going to sanctify you with His precious blood and deliver you from the clutches of darkness. Call upon Jesusí name and invite Him into your heart to be Your Lord and Savior. As you enter into this new month, Jesus will give you the blessings of abundant joy, happiness, peace and prosperity in your life. Certainly, the Lord will help you to faithfully follow His ways and yield fruit that will be pleasing to His eyes.

PRAYER:

Dear Lord,

Thank You for this beautiful month. My heart is filled with gratitude and joy remembering the sacrifice You have made on the cross for me. Come oh Lord! I prepare my heart for You to come and dwell in me. Let this month be a very blessed one to me. Lord, help me to spread Your love and joy to others. I offer this prayer with thanksgiving,

Amen.
