A love that never fails, is eternal
To the editor:
Valentine’s Day has always been a favorite date on the calendar — and love certainly is a favorite word in anyone’s vocabulary. It is God’s favorite word too! Love is God’s nature, his essence, his being. He doesn’t choose to love — he is love! And you and I are the objects of his love!
God’s love is pure. It never fails. It is unconditional. It is eternal. He just loves because he is! He does not love everything we do, but he loves every sinner — no matter what! He is calling you! He is calling me!
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).
In love he gave his life on the cross for atonement for our sins, but it is our decision to accept or reject that love gift that He is offering us.
A person can offer someone a valentine, but it is up to the other person to accept or reject it. This is a small comparison to the love that God offers us. Our lives and eternity depend upon our decision to either accept or reject his love. There will never be a greater offer made. Satan may try to deceive folks, but his future is only failure.
God Is love — the greatest and eternal!
