The Greatest Gift of Love #Valentine’s #Jesus

What great love we have received from our creator that He gave His son as the payment for our transgressions.

Today as you are hearing about all the gifts received on Valentine’s day, remember that you have received a gift greater than anything you could receive from Hallmark or Jared.

We were separated from God by our sin. We all sin! Yet, the Lord has given us a way of redemption. Faith in His Son, Jesus, and what Jesus did for us on the cross is all that it takes to receive our gift.

Jesus, God’s son, died for our sins. But three days later Jesus awoke from death, His body now glorified, and presented himself to several hundred people as proof of His resurrection. He then ascended into Heaven with a promise, that He will return to bring all those who believe in Him into His kingdom. Those believers who die before Jesus returns will be resurrected as Jesus was on the day He returns.

The gift of salvation, eternal life and a connection with our creator through faith in Jesus comes to us by the grace and love of God.

He loves you! Accept His gift and know that you are loved.

“But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),”
Ephesians 2:4‭-‬5 NASB

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”
John 3:15‭-‬18 NASB

“When you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made you alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our transgressions, having canceled out the certificate of debt consisting of decrees against us, which was hostile to us; and He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.”
Colossians 2:13‭-‬14 NASB

Let us Love one Another, because Love is from God

Simple truths found in 1 John 4:

  1. Love is from God
  2. Everyone who knows God will love
  3. Those who do not love, does not know God
  4. God is love
  5. Jesus came because God loved us
  6. If you say you love God but hate your neighbor, you are a LIAR!

“Dear friends, let us love one another, because love is from God, and everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. The one who does not love does not know God, because God is love. God’s love was revealed among us in this way: God sent His One and Only Son into the world so that we might live through Him. Love consists in this: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Dear friends, if God loved us in this way, we also must love one another. No one has ever seen God. If we love one another, God remains in us and His love is perfected in us. This is how we know that we remain in Him and He in us: He has given assurance to us from His Spirit. And we have seen and we testify that the Father has sent His Son as the world’s Savior. Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God — God remains in him and he in God. And we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and the one who remains in love remains in God, and God remains in him. In this, love is perfected with us so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment, for we are as He is in this world. There is no fear in love; instead, perfect love drives out fear, because fear involves punishment. So the one who fears has not reached perfection in love. We love because He first loved us. If anyone says, “I love God,” yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For the person who does not love his brother he has seen cannot love the God he has not seen. And we have this command from Him: The one who loves God must also love his brother.”
1 John 4:1‭-‬21 HCSB
