We see what love looks like all around us - but where does it come from? Why do we love at all?

We have a wide and wonderful capacity for love - for family and friends, for our world, even for strangers. But we’re not lovely or loving all the time. Our love is flawed.

1 John 4:19 tells us that ‘We love because God first loved us’.

This Valentine’s day we can celebrate the greatest love story of the God who sent his only Son to forgive and rescue us from our failures and sin, and welcome us into his perfect love.

He is the God who loved us - first.

This video is also available in a version that doesn't mention Valentine's day which could be used any time of the year.
