‘Love is a Many Splendored Thing,” the title song from the 1955 movie by the same name, topped the charts that year. I suspect it will be played often over the airwaves during February. In defining love as “the April rose in the early spring,” its lyrics picture love as delicate and fragile. To say that “Love is nature’s way of giving a reason to be living,” can only be realized via our close connection with the nature of God.
The verse 1 John 4:8 declares that “anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love.” Some 37 times the Bible describes a love relationship between God and the humanity that crowned his creation. In Colossians 2:2-3, Paul “wanted (believers) encouraged and knit together by strong ties of love … to have a complete, confident understanding of God’s mysterious plan, which is Christ himself. In him are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.”
