Happy Saint Valentine’s Day! Surely by now you’ve sent or received the flowers…mostly roses…and have a large supply of candy on hand…mostly chocolate hearts…and have a good looking display of cards…mostly with words about love on them. It’s what Valentine’s Day is all about. And that’s all right because the Bible tells us about God’s love, the love through Jesus Christ who died to save us from sin, and instructs us on who and how to love.
- 1 John 4: 15 says, “And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.”
- In John 15:17 Jesus tells us, “This is my command: Love one another.”
- And 1st Corinthians 13, the definitive Biblical chapter on love, ends with these words, “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
