St. Valentine’s Day: Love, Pain, Sacrifice

Sometimes, it’s hard to truly understand what love means. I woke up this morning and spent 1 hour 54 minutes watching a movie The Passion of the Christ (Full Screen Edition) I watched how one innocent man was arrested, scourged, mocked, spat on, bruised, hung and killed on a cross. How severe his wounds were, the price he paid just because His Father, Your Father and mine loves us much. His love for became more painful when nails were driven through his wrists and feet. What greater love can be compared to that which The Father and The Son showed us as He gave His only begotten son so that whosoever believes in Him shall no perish but have eternal life. John 3:16

Unconditional love you may call it. Where the condition in unCONDITIONal is that we love and believe in Him as much as He loves us. Look inward and ask yourself “How many of my friends can die for me?” yet Jesus did. Not simply by a gun, a sword or even a fatal accident but through a very painful and extruciating death sentence. A remarkable sacrifice that cleanses us all from sin.

Are you still thinking that because noone has sent you an email or text message saying “Happy St.Valentine’s Day” hence you aren’t loved? Scratch that thought because against all odds, Jesus Loves You.

Happy St. Valentine Day!
