“We know love by this, that He laid down His life for us; and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren." I John 3:16
February is the month for True Love. This month stores will be filled with cards and hearts to remind us that love is in the air.
The Bible gives us another blueprint for love--a love that sacrifices for us. John 3:16 tells us that God so loved the world that He gave us His only Son, but I John 3:16 adds that this is how we know what love is--that Christ died for us.
Our featured book for February continues to be The Invitation. In The Invitation, Kinsman extends invitations to change the lives of those receive them. In order to receive an Invitation, the recipient must be nominated by someone who sacrifices something significant in order to help someone else experience a new life. It is an allegory to remind us that all of us who have felt the love of God have experienced that love not only because God so loved the world, but because other people gave up their time, talent and money to see that the message of God's love would be told all over the world. And somewhere along the way, someone in our own lives loved us enough to tell us that we could experience the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ.
As we celebrate Valentine's month, we hope that you experience the truest love there is--the love of God through His son and that you will receive His invitation to become part of His family and a relationship that never ends.
