But one person did make plans to show His love for us not just on Valentine's Day but everyday. God sent His one and only Son to die on a cross to save us and show us just how much he loved us! That is the biggest sacrifice for love. The bible says: "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." (John 3:16)
