Thought for the Week

Hello.

It seems like only yesterday when the world was packing away all the Christmas decorations and – whoa! – here comes Valentine’s Day.

Love is in the air everywhere you look (especially if you look in the shops). But have you ever wondered where love comes from?

The Bible tells us it comes from God, that God in fact is love. And in 1 John 4:19 NIVUK, we read a radical statement that takes this thought further: “We love because He first loved us”. In other words, we are only able to love because God invented this thing called love.

What this means is that, not only is there no love without God, but without God loving us, we would not be able to love others.

Which begs another question: is God is to blame for Valentine’s Day?

Certainly not – He has far too much taste for that!
All the very best,
Peter Mill
