This week or really month is all about love. With Valentine's Day tomorrow, stores are filled with candy, hearts, flowers, balloons and cards that are all designed to tell people how much they are loved. Regardless of how you feel about Valentine's Day, love is something to be celebrated.
"Dear friends, let us love one another, because love is from God, and everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. The one who does not love does not know God, because God is love." - 1 John 4:7,8
While it's a time to celebrate the loving relationships we have on earth, the greatest love we ever have known or ever will know is the love of God. It amazes me every time I really stop and think about how much He loves me. Nothing I have done or will do can separate me from His love. Nothing I experience on earth will measure up to the love He has for me.
The hymn says it best - "Oh, love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure—
The saints’ and angels’ song."
It's one of the greatest songs about God's love. I can't say it any better than this -
