Love Jesus...Love Others

by Robin Roady - Children's Ministry Coordinator

“We love because He first loved us.” I John 4:19

I know Valentine’s Day brings mixed feelings for many people and many people find it to be a silly “made up” holiday but for me…..I LOVE IT!!!! Brad is always so good to the girls and I, but on Valentine’s Day he goes above and beyond to show his love for us with chocolates, flowers and even a cute stuff animal. Traditionally, we end our day with a heart-shaped pizza for dinner. It’s a fun holiday for our family, and an extra special day where we really go all out to show our love for one another.

Even if Valentine’s Day is not for you, did you know that we all have someone who loves us so much that He gave each of us a special and perfect gift? Jesus! Jesus loves you so much that He gave his life for you. There is nothing you can do that would make Jesus love you any less. Once you accept his gift of salvation, you can never be snatched from His hand.

We love others simply because Jesus first loved us! Loving others does not necessarily mean chocolates, or roses or stuffed animals. Loving others means truly being there for someone when they are struggling, sending a card of encouragement to a church member, showing up with a hot meal when a family has a new baby, helping a widow around her house or yard, sitting with a friend who is grieving the loss of a loved one, or helping a child use their Bible so they can learn more about God and His love for them. The list could go on.

We love because God first loved us. Who can you show love to this month? Let’s show God’s love to others through all we say and do.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
