HOLY  LOVE  FROM  ABOVE        

  1. This is the heart that has left us the mark
    The heart so much purer than gold
    It brought us salvation like Noah’s grand ark
    The greatest of stories that’s told

 

  1. It came from the Father, enthroned from on high
    From the seat of his mercies above
    His groanings and passionate tears is just why
    He gave us this story of love

 

  1. There’s no other soul that can show us the way
    That our God really feels about us
    Yes, this is the one and the only display
    That could win our eternal trust

 

  1. Though God feels rejected he’s highly connected
    To us who are lost in our sin
    And, though disrespected he’s highly invested
    In getting us back once again

 

  1. So, this is the Spirit so holy and true
    That’s wooing us all to his side
    It’s granting redemption to me and to you
    And to all human beings worldwide

 

  1. In the fullness of time, Jesus showed us God’s mind
    And unfathomable riches of grace
    Freely cleansing our stains with that blood, so divine
    Leaving sanctified sons in its place

 

  1. Consider God’s will up on Calvary’s hill
    On the sight of his atoning work
    For his Spirit to work ’til we all have been filled
    And, God’s glory becomes our support

 

  1. Now, the flesh of his Christ has paid the full price
    And paved us a way rich and blest
    To experience God’s best and his eternal life
    And to know him in glory and rest

 

  1. At the end of the day, all along the lone way
    Our God loves us to death, and no less
    “Holy Love From Above” is just what it all says
    And, the heart of our God manifest.

 

Some fantasies are just that, fantasies. However, some fantasies are based on truth. Here, we have a reality much too precious to give over to a fictional character. News flash: Cupid ain’t real, but Christ sure is. The pierced heart we have accustomed to using for Valentine’s Day to symbolize natural love, is actually a representation of a love that was dramatized live, physically, publicly, and quite historically.

The heart pierced was the heart of the only son of God. And, the arrow of cupid actually represents the spear, which was used to lance the side of Jesus Christ. The scripture tells us,

“For this cause shall a man… be joined unto his wife… This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church” (Ephesians 6:32, 33).

Furthermore, it says,

“And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.”  Genesis 2:31-32

Do you get the picture yet? The side of man is where woman came from. This woman was to be the everlasting love of his life. Ephesians 6 told us that the romantic love between a man and his wife is a mystery which really represents the love between Christ and his church, his bride. And, Christ is the “express image of the invisible God” (Heb 1:3; Col 1:15).  So, the arrow-pierced heart symbol actually represents a real-life mystery, not a fantasy. And, this reality is summed up in one well known Bible verse,

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).

God gave his son to us through incarnation, then crucifixion, then resurrection and ascension to God’s right hand. By this, He won us back from sin and death through this sacrificial gift and display of his love.

So, how about we take this symbol back from fantasy? How about we call it by what it really, actually is; the symbol of…

“HOLY  LOVE  FROM  ABOVE  (HLFA).”
