“Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends” – John 15:13
On February 14th, we will celebrate Valentine’s Day. In our culture, Valentine’s Day represents love and this is shown through boxes of chocolates and roses.
This month, we at Gospel Folio Press want to focus on God’s love. God’s love is not shown through chocolates and roses, but through action.
In fact, God’s love was best seen on the cross at Calvary. Paul, in Ephesians, tells us that God made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in sins. Why would God do that? God gave up His own Son because of his great love for us.
God’s love is magnified by our transgressions. When one of our loved ones hurts us, we sometimes withhold our love. But, God saw our transgressions and he still loved us!
