Heaven-Splitting, Earth-Shattering Love

Heaven-Splitting, Earth-Shattering Love

God loves people—men and women, boys and girls, everyone and everywhere. This is the heaven-splitting, earth-shattering good news of Jesus’ coming. This reality overwhelmed Mary and the shepherds alike, who were humbled and brought to worship by the gift of God’s love in Jesus’ coming. Little did they know how far that love would go to reclaim a fallen world and bring life, peace, and light to millions.

When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told. –Luke 2:17-20

Prayer: God, let Your love wash over us. Let us freely and generously share it with others. Thank You for loving us and sending Jesus, in whose name we pray, amen.
