On this Valentines Day, when we show our love to those near and dear to us, what better time to recognize the One who showed the greatest sacrificial love of all: Jesus Christ. Born on this earth, with one goal in mind: to die a horrific death on a Roman cross to save all mankind from the penalty of our sin. And yes, we have all sinned. What love!
"Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends."(John 15:13) Jesus did much more than that. He lay down his life for those who were not His friends.
"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." (John 3:16)
God created each of us with a hole in our hearts, which only He can fill. Many seek to fill their emptiness with drugs, alcohol, relationships, materialism, etc., only to find that they still remain empty and unfulfilled.
Do you know this Jesus in a personal way? He knows you and loves you just as you are, warts and all. Jesus longs to have a loving relationship with you. He doesn't ask much in return, just that you confess your sins and recognize Him as your Savior. In doing so, you will have the assurance of everlasting life in His presence and a peace which passes all understanding. It will be a life-changing experience for you, one which you will NEVER regret.
