Since February is the month of Love, we plan to bring you 4 weeks of Love Stories from our Treehouse Staff. First up, Cassandra's pick for the Greatest LOVE Story.
Knowing that Love is mentioned in the King James Bible 310 times, I feel the greatest love story of all time is God so loving the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, Jesus, to die for our sins, to take our place, to pay our debt and allow us all access to him again. We can completely bypass death when we simply repent, be baptized in his name, and receive the Holy Spirit. What a perfect love story between God and man.
Jesus explains the two most important commandments involve LOVE in Mark 12:30-31: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. Again, LOVE becomes the cornerstone of our instructions from the Lord.
Lastly, Corinthians has something wonderful to say about LOVE. And, now abides faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
Spread some LOVE this month!
