Happy Valentine's Day!

"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." - John 15:13 (KJV)


How appropriate that Valentine's Day should fall on a Sunday when most Christians are headed to church. How wonderful it is to know the love of God and to dwell in the blessings of that great love that led Christ to sacrifice on our behalf.

"But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." - Romans 5:8 (KJV)


Today may you know the love of family and friends and be blessed by the reminder of God's great love for us. Below is one of my favorite hymns that paint a beautiful picture of God's love for us.

The Love of God

The love of God is greater far
Than tongue or pen can ever tell;
It goes beyond the highest star,
And reaches to the lowest hell;
The guilty pair, bowed down with care,
God gave His Son to win;
His erring child He reconciled,
And pardoned from his sin.

O love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure
The saints’ and angels’ song.

When years of time shall pass away,
And earthly thrones and kingdoms fall,
When men, who here refuse to pray,
On rocks and hills and mountains call,
God’s love so sure, shall still endure,
All measureless and strong;
Redeeming grace to Adam’s race—
The saints’ and angels’ song.

O love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure
The saints’ and angels’ song.

Could we with ink the ocean fill,
And were the skies of parchment made,
Were every stalk on earth a quill,
And every man a scribe by trade,
To write the love of God above,
Would drain the ocean dry.
Nor could the scroll contain the whole,
Though stretched from sky to sky.

O love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure
The saints’ and angels’ song.

-Words and music by Fred­er­ick M. Leh­man, 1917

God bless! :)
