This month is Valentines Day and it's always a time to celebrate, in an extra special way, our love for that extraordinary person in our lives. I would encourage you to cherish your love by praying for them and thanking God that He put you together with such a special person. And let me say that God is the master at matchmaking. For you that are single at this time, just know there is a perfect match for you!
Of course, there is no greater love than the love of Jesus Christ for His Church. He has proven this love by offering Himself on the cross. The Word of God says in John 15:13, “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” Love is willing to sacrifice for the one you love. The best description of love is found in I Corinthians 13: “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.” Now that's what I call love and that is the love Jesus Christ has for you!
Thank you for your love and commitment to your church, and as always I am here to serve you and help you make heaven your eternal home.
