About the 4th week of Advent:
The fourth candle, the "Candle of Love," reminds Christians that God loves them enough to send the only Son to Earth.
"We light this candle because we look forward with eagerness to the birth of a child, the son of Mary and the Son of God! The purple color reminds us of how serious we are in looking forward to the Son’s birth."
A 4th candle! The candle representing love!
Aren't we so lucky to have this candle to remind us of a child that is to be born soon. That child, will love us unconditionally without compromise, without prejudice, without anger or hatred.
He will love us just as we are. Beautiful in our own rights.
He won't Facebook or Tweet to tell us he is coming. He won't send an email or mail us a letter.
No, instead an angel will announce his coming.
And oh, he will come! He will come just as you and I do, from the womb of a woman. He will come crying out to the nations and the nations will hear him in the quietness of the manger.
Love will be born and we will benefit.
Are we ready?
