This is the one month that we take one day to focus on the one person in our lives we love the most. The world calls it Valentine’s Day. It is great the we recognize and pay special attention to the one person in our lives we love the most. However, shouldn’t we really focus our love on them more than just that one day a year. I mean if we really do love them shouldn’t we show them and tell them as often as we can. The more we tell them and show them we love them, the more they will do the same to us.
If you ask someone what is the best love story of all time they would probably tell you the story of Romeo and Juliet or maybe Cleopatra and Mark Anthony. If you ask a happily married man or woman, they might tell you that their love story to them is the best love story ever told. I for one would agree because I know the Lord provided one of his children to be the love of my life. Eph 5:28 says “So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies”.
Well I must tell you that all of those answers would be wrong. The best love story of all time is the story of Jesus Christ and His love for us. See, God is God and the love He has for us began a long time before we were ever born. He gave us a gift that is better than any gift anyone could ever hope to receive. John 3:16 says “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.”
I am so grateful for the Love of our Lord Jesus. He said in I John 3:1 “Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God”. As a child of the one true Living God, what I’m really excited about is the following promise given to us in John 14:2-3 “In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” We have that promise that we get to be with the one who loves us and the one that we love. Talk about love, there is no greater love than the love of Jesus!
If we really do love Jesus, shouldn’t we show Him and tell Him as often as we can. The more we tell Him and show Him, the more He will do the same to us. Deut 6:5 “And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.”
Greatest Love Story ever told, yes that would be the story of Jesus Christ.
