The Greatest of These Is Love

 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love.
But the greatest of these is love. 
1 Corinthians 13:13
Thousands of years ago we received the greatest and best valentine we could ever receive.  That valentine was God's only son. He came into this world to show us what real love was all about.  He loved us so much that He laid down His life for us so that we could have eternal life with Him and our Heavenly Father.
O The Deep, Deep Love Of Jesus
by S. Trevor Francis, 1875
O the deep, deep love of Jesus,
Vast unmeasured, boundless, free!
Rolling as a mighty ocean
In its fullness over me!
Underneath me, all around me,
Is the current of Thy love
Leading onward, leading homeward
To thy glorious rest above!

O the deep, deep love of Jesus,
Spread His praise from shore to shore!
How He loveth, ever loveth,
Changeth never, nevermore!
How He watches o'er His loved ones,
Died to call them all His own
How for them He intercedeth,
Watcheth o'er them from the throne!
O the deep, deep love of Jesus,
'Tis a heav'n of heav'ns to me
And it lifts me up to glory, for it lifts me up to Thee!
