The Greatest Love of All

14 Feb

Remember your first crush? Think about that very first object of your affection. Oh, the sweaty palms. The swoony feeling in your stomach. Tell us the story of your first crush. What was it about this person that made your heart pound? Was the love requited? Change the names to protect the guilty or innocent if you must! No judgement here. Happy Valentine’s Day!

It is Valentine’s day. A day we take time to focus on romance and love. It is a day when people buy jewelry, chocolate and mushy cards. It is the day to say I love you to your significant other. It is the day to give heart-shaped candy boxes and roses. The candy and flower industries must love this holiday!

In the spirit of this day, I just wanted to make a short post, reminding us all of God’s love for us.

The oft-quoted, nearly universally memorized verse is perfect for just such an occasion:

For God so loved the world, he gave his One and only Son, so that whoever believes in him will not perish, but will have eternal life. John 3.16

Today, as it should be everyday, let us be reminded and grateful for the endearing, unconditional love of God through his Son, Jesus Christ. God is love and because of that we can love others.
