Fourth Sunday in Advent: Love

Happy Fourth Sunday in Advent!! This week’s theme is love as we focus on God’s great love for us, as He sent His son, Jesus to be born on earth. He lived and grew, had pain, was tempted, lived a sinless life and eventually died on the cross to take the punishment we deserved for our sins.  His Father God was so pleased with his sacrifice that He brought Him back to life after three days of being dead. The manger is just the beginning of the story. 

Love
