the Greatest Love Story

Is it ok for Christian to celebrate Valentine’s Day?  The history of Valentine’s Day is riddled with tales of kings signing off on letters with my dear valentine, Greek mythology of flying babies drawing two people together with the shot of his love arrow, or pagan rituals and martyred saints who only crime was making a way for Christian to get married.  That which transcended in to what we know today as the commercialized version of Valentine’s Day; cards, candy, and flowers. 

While none of these stories in history neither amount to anything good or has so many holes no one knows what to believe.  Celebrating this day can be romantic and entertaining, but let us not forget the greatest historical document of love The Bible.  The Bible is a book full of true, tested, accurate accounts of love stories that is still unfolding as we speak.   Jehovah God showed love for a father one morning when he asked this father, who would go on to become the father of many nations, to sacrifice his son.  As we read this story we gasp and ask what kind of a loving God would ask such a thing?  We would later find out the very God that ask Abraham to kill is son is the same God that sent his son Jesus to die on a cross for the sins of mankind.  Unlike Abraham son who did not suffer the same fate as Jesus actually had to die that we might live.  This is the greatest love story to every actually take place.

This same love that I just spoke of is the very fabric Gad is made of, 1 John 4:8 says God is Love. We are required to live with this same love; Matthew 22:37 say Love the Lord with all your heart soul and mind.  The story of a dying savior you can find that in John 3:16 For God so loved the world he gave his only begotten son so that we may not perish but have everlasting life. There is one more scripture that resonates with us on this day.  Ephesians 5:25 Love your wife like Christ love the church.  Happy Valentine’s Day.
