God's love with us on Valentine's Day

God's love with us on Valentine's Day

Wednesday is Valentine's Day. A day to celebrate with the love of your life all of the love you have for each other.

But, this Valentine's Day is extra special because it falls on Ash Wednesday, which is the beginning of Lent.

So give your spouse and children the greatest Valentine's Day gift of all this year and take them to church this coming Wednesday for their Ash Wednesday service.

After all, the greatest gift of love we have or will ever receive is the love God had for all of us when he sent his son to live and die on the cross to save us all our sins, so that we are, by God's grace alone, given forgiveness for all of our sins and we will go to heaven to spend our eternal lives with Him and all of those who have gone before us.

All we have to do is ask God's forgiveness, and it is ours.

What a wonderfully amazing gift. No matter how many cards, candy, flowers and gifts you can purchase for your true love this Valentine's Day, just remember, the greatest gift of love has already been given to us all. And that is the love of Christ. Amen."For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son. That whosoever believes in Him, should not perish but have everlasting life." John 3:16
