"The Greatest Valentine"

Greatest Valentine“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life      John 3:16

   There was a great theologian who came to the USA from England and was being interviewed by a group of seminary students.  The question was asked, “What is the most profound thought that ever occupied your mind.”  The answer was, “Jesus loves me this I know for the Bible tells me so.”

   You may go very, very deep in theology; you may become a scholar; you may become a philosopher, but you’ll never ever understand anything more profound than to understand that God loves you so much He gave His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.

   The greatest Valentine ever given to you was Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God!  Now we get the opportunity to know what love is and know how to love.

Such love, such wondrous love
Such love, such wondrous love
That God would love a sinner such as I
How wonderful is love like this!

   May we turn our affection to our Heavenly Father and love Him with all our heart, our mind, and soul.  Bow your head where you are and say to the Lord, "Father, thank You for loving me.  Thank You for sending Your Son to die in my place, bearing my sins, and shedding His precious blood to save me.  May Your Holy Spirit shed Your love abroad in my heart that I may love You as You have loved me.  Let Your Spirit bear the fruit of love in me that I can love others how I have been loved."
