ADVENT - What Did You Expect? - LOVE
Passage: Luke 1:46–1:56
Christmas reminds many of us of love lost or love lacking. We hear that gifts go not to the naughty but to the nice, and we are compelled to give often not out of love but in order to receive love. We need to hear Mary's words that God is merciful and gracious to fill the hungry with good things. He loved us so much that he gave us his own Son regardless of how naughty or nice we've been. His love is undeserved, enduring, and sacrificial.
