The Bible says, “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” (1 John 4:9).
God who is love manifested in the flesh!
Since God loved us, He took the form of a man and came into the world as Jesus (Luke 1:31,35). The angel of God appeared to Mary in a vision and said, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God.”
Though God is gracious and mighty, He humbled Himself, took the form of a man and came in search of us. What a great love He has for us!
When Abraham Lincoln was the President of USA, one day, he went to certain place. All the rich people including the army generals and officials were waiting to receive him. When he arrived there, he went straight to a poor young man and said, “Son! Are you waiting to see me? What do you want?”
Immediately, the young man burst into tears. He said, “Sir! I am a drummer in your army. But I have become sick and I do not have money. Hence I am much grieved.” The President asked him, “Where are your parents?” He replied, “Sir! My father died in the war and my mother died after my father’s death. Now I am an orphan.” The President was moved with compassion. Immediately he sent a note to the army general saying, “Take care of him.”
Dearly beloved! The President of the United States went in search of the poor young man. The Psalmist says in Psalm 40:17, “I am poor and needy; Yet the Lord thinks upon me.” Accordingly, to prove that he is mindful of us, the poor, Lord Jesus came into this world.
Lord Jesus became poor on the Cross to deliver us from the curse of poverty. The Lord remembers those who are in poverty and in need and cares for them. When we call upon Him in our time of need, He will surely hear us and deliver us. He will bless us abundantly.
Loving Lord Jesus,
You became poor on the Cross to deliver me from the curse of poverty. I believe that You have secured blessings for me on the Cross and seek your divine help in the time of my need. You are my Provider. Please supply all my needs miraculously. May I lack nothing good in life.
In Your matchless name I pray.
