No Love, No Life
By Pastor Dennis Felder
 
Imagine for a moment if there was no such thing as Love.
 
If so, relationships would have no purpose, the joy of life would have no value, and this world would feel empty.
You see, if there was no love, life would not be worth living.
It is love that gives purpose, it is love that adds value, and it is love that fills an empty void.
The world understands the hurt and pain that is felt when life is void of love.
A person who feels that no one loves them will often feel worthless.
When love is absent, people may express a desire to end their life.
How heartbreaking it is to hear such stories.
The reason why so many people contemplate suicide is because they feel that no one loves them.
 
You see, when there is no love, there is no life.
Thankfully our heavenly Father understood the reality of “no love, no life”.
Through His grace and mercy, He made it a priority to fill this world with love so that we all could enjoy an abundant life (John 10:10).
 
This gift of unconditional love that God gave to the world was His one and only Son, Jesus Christ.
It reads in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

So, as we celebrate Valentine’s Day, let us not forget the greatest display of unconditional love was when God spared not His only Son upon the cross.
Through this ultimate sacrifice, we are assured today that with His great love, we can enjoy the wonderful blessings of life.
Let’s enjoy it to the fullest.
