This year more than any other, I am reminded that my comfort and satisfaction comes from God alone. And I am reminded that the greatest love was shown to me at the cross. For God so loved me that He sent His son to earth, to die, to bear the wrath for every single one of my sins-even sins that I haven’t committed yet. There is no greater love than this. And only because of His love for us, are we able to love others.
“We love because He first loved us.” 1 John 4:19
It is a wonderful thing to celebrate the people in our lives on Valentine’s Day. We are called to love one another. But we must not lose sight of the love that we are mercifully allowed to celebrate every single day- the love that replaces weariness with strength, affliction with joy, and sin with forgiveness.
Whether you are single or married, be encouraged and reminded today of God’s love for you. You are never alone. You won’t ever spend one second being unloved.
“I have loved you with an everlasting love.” Jeremiah 31:3
