And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart,
with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.
~ Mark 12:30 ~
God has revealed His love for us since the beginning; but His greatest expression of love is through Jesus Christ.
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. ~ Romans 5:8 ~
By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. ~ 1 John 3:16 ~
Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.
~ 1 Corinthians 2:9 ~
In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son [to be] the propitiation for our sins. ~ 1 John 4:9-10 ~
And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma. ~ Ephesians 5:2 ~
Our love for Him, then, comes because He first loved us (1 John 4:19). On this Valentine’s Day, a love song for the One who first loved us.
Thank You, Father, for Your perfect love, given to us through Your Son, Jesus. Your lovingkindness has brought us to repentance and reconciled us to You. May our hearts overflow with love, praises, honor, and glory to You every day, for it is because of Jesus that we have a love song to sing forever! In Jesus’ precious and name — the name by which we can be saved, amen.
May His love be poured into you and your cup overflow.
