Nancy Reagan, wife of late President Ronald Reagan, died last month. She is noted for her work on drug abuse and for the slogan “Just Say No.” But she will be best remembered for her real life love story with her husband. Her son, Ron Junior said, “I don’t think they ever spent a day apart where they didn’t speak on the phone…they stayed in love for fifty-two years.” They loved each other. But there is an even greater love than the marital love which the Reagans have beautifully exemplified. It is God’s love for His enemies, for wrong-doers, for those who do not love Him. The Bible is full of references to that great love, such as in John’s gospel, “God so loved that world that He gave His only begotten Son…” and in Ephesians, “But God, who is rich in mercy because of His great love with which He loved us…” And that great love is available to all of us who “have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” It is the greatest love story ever told.
