Luccock: wrapped up in a Person

Monday, December 21, 2015
    This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
    —1 John 4:9-10 (NIV)
    A scientist said, making a plea for exchange scholarships between nations, “The very best way to send an idea is to wrap it up in a person.” That was what happened at Christmas. The idea of divine love was wrapped up in a Person.
    ... Halford E. Luccock (1885-1960), “Whoops! It’s Christmas”, in Halford Luccock Treasury, New York: Abingdon, 1963, p. 380 (see the book)
    See also 1 John 4:9-10; Luke 4:18; John 5:22-23; 6:29; 8:29-42
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your arms embrace me.
