Valentine’s Day is a time when we acknowledge the ones we love and the ones who love us.  This could include many people.  At this time it would be nice to show appreciation to and thank the ‘person’ who loves you most, God.

    From the day of creation God implemented a plan that would allow forgiveness for all our sins and allow us to live for eternity in His presence.  God’s infinite love developed the plan and His Son, Jesus, showed us His infinite love by dying on the cross.  Romans 6:23 tells us “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”  Jesus was the only one capable of taking our all of our sins.  There have been many good men throughout history who did wonders to advance civilization.  Jesus, however, is the only Son of God, the only one capable of dying on the cross and atoning for our sins.  For this we need to be eternally grateful.

    “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (KJV)
