Nearly everyone defines February as the “love month”. After all, Valentine’s Day occurs in February. This is problematic. Do we only express love during February? The Bible speaks of the sacrificial love that God, the Father pours on us. It is called agape love. This is neither a friendship love nor a sensual love. In fact this is the love that exudes between God, the Father and God, the Son. It is the same love demonstrated by God when he commissioned His Son, Jesus to die for our sins. It is the same love Jesus demonstrated when he voluntarily took on the cross for us when we were His enemies. John 3:16 states that God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son…” Romans 12:2 says, “For the joy that lay before him (Jesus), he endured the cross, despising the shame…” Through the Holy Spirit, we have access to that “agape love”. I recall an author recommending reading 1 Corinthians 13 everyday to refresh our minds and hearts about the importance of demonstrating love in all that we do. Let’s make sure the foundation of all that we do is firmly anchored in love.
