God’s Valentine

If the love of God was a box of chocolates, each chocolate would be filled with propitiation.  God’s Valentine:

In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. (1 John 4:10)

God’s love is always first. He loves sinful humanity before any man or woman loves him.

God’s love is always shown. He graciously sends his Son Jesus to die in the place of sinnners and satisfy his holy wrath (propitiation).

Love is never merely sentimental, but sacrificial.
