The fourth Candle of Advent is the Candle of Love.
Its light is meant to remind us of the love that God has for us.
We light this candle to remind us of how God’s perfect love is found in Jesus.
The prophet Isaiah, in Chapter 7, verse 14, points us to the love of God, given in his son.
“The Lord will give you a sign.
Look, the young woman is with child and shall bear a son,
and shall name him Immanuel – God with us.”
We light the Candle of hope.
We light the Candle of Peace.
We light the Candle of Joy.
We light the Candle of Love.
Let us pray:
Gracious God, may the light of your LOVE
shine in our lives and be reflected to all the world.
Fill us with your love,
that we may rejoice in hope,
trusting that in the fullness of time
you will fill the earth with heaven’s peace.
Through Christ our Lord,
