14 Bible Verses on the Love of Christ for Valentine’s Day

14 Bible Verses on the Love of Christ for Valentine's Day

Just in time for Valentine’s Day I wanted to share 14 bible verses to help you focus on the love of Christ. I know typically when we talk about Valentine’s Day, we discuss relationship love. 

Don’t feel like reading, watch the video
But instead of focusing on relationships I wanted to focus on the love of Christ. The constant never changing love of Christ Jesus. There is no greater love than the love of Christ. 

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 ESV

If you have ever read any book in the Old Testament, you begin to recognize the significance of Christ. The Old Testament will help you have more gratitude for Christ. 
You should praise him for freeing is from being governed by the law. You now are governed by grace because of the crucifixion of Christ.

Reading from the Old Testament and New Testament helps you appreciate the gift of salvation we were granted through Jesus Christ. God’s love and Christ’s love is exemplified by his sacrifice.
Take a moment to meditate on this, Christ was free of sin. But Christ was willing to pay the ultimate price of death on the cross for our sins. 
Christ Jesus died so that we may one day experience eternal life and return to our Lord Elohim. The death of Christ says a lot about the love he has for each one of us.

Christ Jesus death also speaks to the love God has for each one of us. God gave his only son so that we may have a chance at eternal life.
How much God must love us to sacrifice his perfect child. If you are a parent, think about if you would be willing to sacrifice your child for others.
I don’t know about you. But my answer as a parent of two kids. Would surely be no. There is just no one on this earth that I would be willing to sacrifice my child for.
