The LOVE month is here! I am so excited about February. Valentine’s Day is my absolute favorite holiday, and I also have a birthday this month =). While most find it difficult to become excited over a holiday they view as frivolous, I am bulging with excitement to spread the LOVE! Yes, this holiday may be mostly about letting your significant other know how much you care, but it can also be opportunity for us to live out the mission we were placed on earth for… to spread God’s love to every person we come in meet.
People often ask me why I love this holiday so much, and the answer is quite simple. I am called to LOVE… we all are. I think a day that is set aside for humans to focus solely on love, while the majority of our day-to-day lives are filled with hate and malice, is a wonderful thing.
The world needs to know they are loved… that no mistake nor anything else can separate them from the overwhelmingly unconditional love of God. He was the first to show the world what an act of true love is all about. Sacrifice. He made the ultimate sacrifice, waged a war on death, and won! How glorious is that!
I challenge you all to spread the love this Valentine’s Day. Show the world what a love that is true. Show the world the power of love. Let the world know there is hope and peace through the love of Jesus.
“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13
