LOVE
By Michael Brickell, age 15; member, Vegas Valley Church Of CHRIST

February 14th is well known as Valentine's Day, when gifts are exchanged and we indulge in chocolate, but the reason we celebrate Valentine's, mostly, is to say to the person whom we love that we love them the most. It would be odd to tell that person we love them on Valentine's Day, but the rest of the year, say nothing. Why is Valentine's Day so special? Do we love someone more on that day than all the others? I surely know Jesus is not like this. Jesus loves us each and every single day. He never loves us less, but more.

God so loved the world that He gave up His Son for us (John 3:16).

Love is a strong thing to have (1st Corinthians 13:8); love is the best (1st Corinthians 13:13). If you truly love Jesus you will follow His commandments (John 14:15). Many people only show love to Jesus on the first day of the week, but the rest of the week they do not.

Who should we love? Jesus told His disciples to love their enemies and pray for those who persecute you (Matthew 5:43-44). Paul told husbands they should love their wives just as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her (Ephesians 5:25). You should love your neighbor as yourself (Leviticus 19:18).

Perfect love casts out fears (1st John 4:18). If we love God, yet do not love our own brother, we are liars (1st John 4:20). God is love (1st John 4:8). God did a great thing, better than great: God gave up His only begotten Son for our sins (1st John 4:9-10). He truly loves us and we need to truly love Him, too.

Love is important. We must love God, Jesus, our enemies, family, and brothers because Jesus showed us love (John 15:12-13).

Love Jesus every day.
