Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13 (ESV)

How is Love displayed in the Bible?

Love created the earth.
Love walked with Adam & Eve in the garden.
Love sent Adam & Eve away from the garden after they sinned.
Love chose a people as His own.
Love prepared a way, at the fullness of time for His Son to come.
Love sent His only Son, as a baby to be born in a lowly manger.
Love died on the cross for our sins.

How does it make you feel that God had a plan from the beginning of time?  Are you thankful for this gift of life?  How do you show others that you are thankful to God?  How are you sharing God’s love to others this Christmas?

Love Came Down

Love came down, and we met Him in a manger
Love came down, and we treated Him a stranger,
love poured out, as we nailed him to a cross,
Love it paid the debt that I could not.humble baby, lying in the hay
Came from Heaven, to be with man that day.
Not as a king, not on a throne,
he came as a man, in a carpenters home!Love came down, and we met Him in a manger
Love came down, and we treated Him a stranger,
love poured out, as we nailed him to a cross,
Love it paid the debt that I could not.Angels telling, of the Messiahs birth,
to Sheppard’s watching, tending to the herds,
Behold he is here, the Savior of the world,
He’s come to set you free, now go to him and seeLove came down, and we met Him in a manger
Love came down, and we treated Him a stranger,
love poured out, as we nailed him to a cross,
Love it paid the debt that I could not.Not just for rich men, but those who are in need.
Not for righteous, but sinners, condemned like me.
Dont ya know that He, was perfect so he died
on the cross he payed the debt for you & I.

Love came down, and we met Him in a manger
Love came down, and we treated Him a stranger,
love poured out, as we nailed him to a cross,
Love it paid the debt that I could not.

Song
– Sing Away In The Manger…
Away in the Manger

Lyrics 1-2: ~ Anonymous, 3 ~ John Thomas McFarland, 1851-1913
Music ~ James R. Murray, 1841-1905

Stanza 1:
Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,
The little Lord Jesus laid down His sweet head.
The stars in the sky looked down where He lay,
The little Lord Jesus, asleep on the hay.

Stanza 2:
The cattle are lowing, the baby awakes,
But little Lord Jesus, no crying He makes;
I love thee, Lord Jesus, look down from the sky
And stay by my cradle till morning is nigh.

Stanza 3:
Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to stay
Close by me forever, and love me, I pray;
Bless all the dear children in Thy tender care,
And fit us for heaven to live with Thee there.

Memory Verse – John 3:16
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that
whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

Activity – Make a cross shaped ornament – include a heart.
