Prepare for Advent: Love
Father, in Jesus Christ You have not only showed us Your love.
You have poured it out on us in Him.
He comes to us fully expressing Your boundless love
in every aspect of our lives.
He comes forgiving,
See what great love the Father lavished on us! (1 John 3:1, NIV)
Father, as we gather together in Your presence on this fourth Sunday of Advent,
help us to realize Your love,
receive Your love,
respond to Your love, and
actively express it to everyone we touch day by day.
As You freely poured out Your love through Your Son,
pour it out through us
on all the world,
through His Spirit within us.
