Welcome to “In His Praise!”
It’s Valentine’s Day and love is in the air. Everywhere you look there are advertisements for something that is sure to let your sweetheart know how much you love him or her. Millions of dollars are being spent this weekend on candy, cards, flowers, gifts, trips and so many more things in an attempt to express love to those in our lives that mean so much to us. Now there is nothing wrong with letting others know how special they are or how much they mean to us. The Bible teaches us to love one another.
But let’s be sure to share the good news of the ultimate show of love with others too. There are many verses in the Bible about God’s love, here are just two: “This is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins”, 1 John 4:10.
Also in 1 John, chapter 3, verse one, we can read “How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called the children of God! And that is what we are!”
No one will ever love us more than God does, He is love (1 John 4:16). His love is patient, kind and compassionate, (Psalm 103:8) and nothing can ever separated us from this love (Romans 8:35).
What a great message to share with the world. Let’s tell everybody how much God loves them!
