Motivated To Share His Love With Others
– by Grant & Theunisina Neyt
February is the so-called month of love. This is factually incorrect; every month is the month of love! I read a recent survey about the most appreciated Valentine’s Day gifts, and according to this survey, a romantic dinner takes first place on the list of gifts. This is closely followed by a weekend getaway, and then quality time. This might surprise many, as they are not material gifts, but the most appreciated gifts involve giving of oneself.
The greatest gift that God has given us is not blessings, healings, or things – although we do appreciate these – but the greatest Gift God has given us is Himself. God has given Himself through His Son, Jesus Christ. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” – John 3:16. God laid everything on the line for us just because He loves us so much. The amazing thing about God’s love is that He loves the entire human race, not just those who are born-again. This should encourage us that we are loved, and motivate us to share His love with others!
