Love plays a vital role in the Christmas story.
By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another” (John 13:35).
When Jesus came to this earth, he brought a special kind of love. This love is unselfish, compassionate, unconditional. He loves us just as we are. Our condition is irrelevant to his love. It is a love that picks us up just where we are in life and carries us further than we could ever go on our own.
