Now that Valentines Day is Over

On Valentine's Day people express their love in tangible ways.  Look at some of the numbers from a 2/14/13, CNN report:

224 million -- The estimated number of roses grown for Valentine's Day.

51% -- The percentage of people who buy red roses for this holiday.

6 million -- The number of people who expect or are planning a marriage proposal.

$18.6 billion -- The total spending that will be reached by Valentine's Day.

Now that Valentines Day is over, will you continue to demonstrate your love for your spouse or boyfriend or girlfriend, or others you care about?

Now that you have proposed, what is next?

Christians, in I John 4:19, we learn that we love because God first loved us.  Christians, we really know how to express unconditional love that demands nothing in return (AGAPE) because this is the love we receive from God.

Now that "the big love day" is over, we still have the command from Jesus to show the love (AGAPE) that requires more than money:

At John 13:34-35:

34 "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.
35 "By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another."

Christian's our love is timeless and has no limitations.  When we follow our Lord's example of love, even the non-Christian world recognizes the difference in our love.

God Bless,

Pastor Kennedy (MZO)
