But God demonstrates His own love toward us,
in that while we were still sinners,
Christ died for us.
~ Romans 5:8 ~
God loves us! A man has given his life for another man (or men), but only Jesus Christ gave his life so that ALL men may live.
God’s love toward us will never change—it is everlasting. His plan, from the beginning, was to lavish His love upon us.
Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us,
that we should be called children of God!
~ 1 John 3:1 ~
On this Valentine’s Day, let us love Him by loving others, as John exhorts us in 1 John 3:18, 4:7-8,
My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth. . . . . Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
Lord, thank You, for loving us through Jesus and giving us a life worth living through Him. We love because You first loved us. We ask, in Jesus’ name, to help us love one another as You love us. Amen.
