“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends” (John 15:13 KJV) .
February is the month of “Love”. We buy heart-shaped chocolates, flowers, and cards with hearts on them. Some people even have hearts on their underwear. We all need love: love from our parents, siblings, friends, and husband or wife if we are married. Many look for love in the wrong places.
The greatest man to love us was Jesus. He left heaven to come and live as a man on the earth. Why would the king of heaven come to earth? He came because He loved us. We were helpless in our sin, and the only way for us to be forgiven was for Him to die in our place.
This Valentine ’s Day take time to think about who you would lay down your life for? More importantly who would lay down their life for you?
If you would like to know more about the love Jesus has for you, I encourage you to read the Gospel of John.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16 NLT
