“16And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.” –1 John 4:16 (NIV)
This morning, as it’s Valentine’s Day, remember that there is a love that encapsulates all of you. It lives within you—it is a part of you. And that love is so great, that no matter where you are right now—no matter what you think you did in the past—it’s still there. He still loves you, no strings attached. Today, when you say “I love you,” to your loved one, or think about the act of love, remember the immense, real love God has for you.
Show love to others today, not just because it’s a holiday about it. Show love because God loves you, and you want to reciprocate that and emulate that for those around you.
