I have heard the true story of a young broken hearted man who wrote a letter to his fiancée in blood. It is said that he died after writing the letter. The story of this lover and his message written in his own blood is a moving one, especially at this time in which we celebrate human love, Valentine’s Day.  There is another moving love story written in blood, one I want you to consider now.  That love is the love of Jesus Christ for a lost world.
