Valentine’s Day: Expanding Our Boundaries


YOU ARE LOVED - DEEPERJohn 15:11,12,17 — “These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. This is my commandment, that you love one another, as I have loved you. … These things I command you that you love one another.”

Generally speaking, Valentine’s Day is reserved for spouses, children, grandchildren, and possibly a couple of friends.  But let’s expand our love boundary and take a look at God’s love.  Here is a love that has no boundaries; never did have boundaries; never will have boundaries.

God is the source of love, and He directs us to love as He loves. Take a look around you.  Do you love your neighbor – your fellow employee and boss – your mother-in-law???

On this Valentine’s Day, let’s expand our boundaries and greet everybody with the salutation of “Happy Valentines Day – and – God’s blessings upon you and yours!”

  1. Two thoughts that stand with John’s remninder (red letter) of Jesus’ words come to mind. First is the use of the NOUN “agape” to describe the nature of God (God is Loe,). Second is the verses from Leviticus that Jesus used to answer the question: “…what is the greatest commandment?” His reply: “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, all thy mind, and all thy soul.” and “Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.”
