God is Love. 1 John 4:8
There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear. We love because he first loved us. 1 John 4:18, 19
The "Love Day" is coming up this Sunday. The celebration focuses on romantic love, but its origins had to do with a Catholic Saint named Valentinus, who was a martyr.
Love, however, is so much more than romantic love. In fact, the Greek word for love, agape, used in the Bible refering to God's love, means sacrificial and steadfast.
God is love, the embodiment of agape. God showers His love on use as his created ones. The very best part of who we are reflects that image. It is what brings us peace, and confidence and home in all things.
This love God pours into us is His gift to us. What we do with it is our gift to God. Who will you share God's love with today?
