Walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us. Ephesians 5:2
As you celebrate St. Valentine’s Day, think about Christ’s loving joy for us. Love isn’t simply red hearts, bouquets of flowers and chocolates. (Though I’m sure nobody would complain) True love is unconditional. True love reaches out. True love gives itself sacrificially.
Perhaps you have a special loved one you’re celebrating today with. Or perhaps today is one of the loneliest days of the year for you. Perhaps you’re wondering if anyone is thinking about you. The answer is yes. Jesus thought about you back then. He thought about you as He stood trial and His love for you kept Him focused on the goal: to reconcile you to God. He did all this to show His love … eternally.
Today, remember that you are Christ’s joy. His beloved. And have a very happy Valentine’s Day.
