Valentines Day: Hide Away in the Love of Jesus

For Valentines Day tomorrow (Feb. 14, 2016), we sing this in worship as one of our congregational songs. There is no greater love than the love that was demonstrated at the cross of Christ. The love that exists all around us is because there is a God who sent his son to propitiate, that is, to remove and exhaust the deserved wrath that was aimed at all who would believe upon Christ (1 John 4:7-11). The love that exists between a husband and wife is meant to display before the world that kind of sacrificial love. But loving others is exhausting; our own sin and limitations cause us to fall short. And there is the Good News for weary saints: Hide away in the love of Jesus – he never grows weary loving his bride.

Enjoy!
