Why do you believe God loves you? Why should anyone?
by Simon Cox
During this third week of Advent, as Christmas Day is approaching, we celebrate the love that God has so generously given us. Most people (atheists excluded perhaps) seem to agree with the notion that God loves everyone. It’s a simple idea that reflexively rings true. Some people might agree at first but become more hesitant when the question is personalized then asking, “Do you believe that God loves YOU?” To some it might be a strange thought imagining the Creator of the Universe singling you out of a crowd, pointing his finger with a smile and saying, “I love YOU!” You might be uncomfortable believing that the one true God loves you despite the bad things (sins) that you know you have done.

An Advent and Christmas Analogy
by Adam Jones
Hi, my name is Adam and I'm a sweetaholic. It's been less than 24 hours since my last dessert.
I am sure somewhere (and possibly close by) exists a support group for those addicted to sweets. I would find myself close to that category for sure. It wasn’t always that way. Growing up in the south, I would gladly choose seconds (or thirds) of those savory, deep-fried goods over dessert any day. And then I moved to Bosnia and fell in love with every meal or every coffee visit involving a homemade sweet of some kind. I was hooked. And to this day, a meal is not complete until I have even just the smallest amount of chocolate or some other kind of sweet. It’s bad, especially when I married such a good baker!
That God Loves the world and demonstrates it.
