In the fourth chapter of John's first epistle, we are told that "Love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed His love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins" (vs 7-10).
When I woke up this morning, Paul Baloche's song, "Because of Your Love," was one of the first things that came to mind. It's a song that has been in my heart all day. You can listen to the whole song by clicking here.
The chorus says:
Because of Your love, we're forgivenThis Valentine's Day, will you let him forgive you, cleanse your heart, and forever change you? Your surrendered heart is all God wants for Valentine's Day. Will you give it to Him?
Because of Your love, our hearts are clean
We lift You up with songs of freedom
Forever we're changed because of Your love
Happy Valentine's Day!
