~ Celebrating the Greatest Gift of Love ~

There are so many different ways people choose to celebrate Valentines Day, but I just want to use the opportunity to share how grateful I am for the love God has poured out on my life. I am so blessed and so glad that he chose to send Jesus -- the greatest gift of love we could ever ask for!

I know many people find themselves asking the question, "What is love?" Well, God has given us the most perfect and best definition in his holy word:

~ "God is love." ~
1 John 4:8

By simply looking at all of the attributes of God we discover what it truly means to love. And today of all days should be the best reminder for us to practice the two most important commandments God has given us -- to love the Lord our God with all our hearts, souls, minds, and strength... and to love our neighbors as ourselves. (Matthew 22:37) We love because he first loved us. (1 John 4:19)


"This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers."
1 John 3:16
