Reconnect One: Valentine’s DayFebruary 14, 2019
On this Valentine’s Day our witness to the world is that love is real, God is love and therefore, love is actually all you need.
Today is a good day to remind ourselves of the various kinds of love revealed in the Bible. God’s love is agape, self-sacrificial, I Corinthians 15, enduring love. But there is also philos- friendship love, and eros- erotic love. In English we lump them all together under one term: love.
As we consider love today let us remember that love is a command: You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind and strength and your neighbor as yourself. But love is also a gift and love is also the fruit of the active presence of the Holy Spirit in the life of a believer.
Let us then love today in all the ways worthy of the calling of the children of God, who is love.
