“See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!” 1 John 3:1God’s love for us is great! It is extravagant!! And it is lavished on us!! That means God’s love is heaped up, poured over, bestowed upon, smothered in, and covered by on us. Love comes from God because God is love and so when we love we are in God and God lives in us. The first Christmas was a very physical and tangible expression of God’s love – He sent His Son to us.
