Prepare Him Room, Pt. 4

The fourth candle on the Advent wreath traditionally represents Love.  Love is the reason the Son of God took on our skin and bone, our weakness, our sorrow, and our distance from the Father. The Light of the World stepped down into darkness. He had nothing to gain from leaving his throne. The cost-benefit analysis comes up short on every human scale. He lost everything.

“But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

“See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are.”

His love tipped the scales in our favor. He found in us a treasure worth dying for. What a Savior!

Love incarnate, Love divine. Star and angels gave the sign

Bow to babe on bended knee, the Savior of humanity

Unto us a Child is born. He shall reign forevermore.

Son of God and Son of Man, there before the world began

Born to suffer, born to save, born to raise us from the grave

Christ the everlasting Lord – He shall reign forevermore.

Noel, Noel – Come and see what God has done!

Noel, Noel – the story of amazing love!

The Light of the world, given for us, Noel
