A Heavenly Valentine’s Day Gift…

Valentine’s Day is the day that a good number of people are most aware of their need for love. For some people, it’s a happy day because they are receiving what they feel to be love from somebody else. For other people, it is a sad day because they are not receiving what they feel is love. Some folks have dates, some don’t!  Loneliness and depression can quickly set in.  Even if you are with a significant other or getting attention from somebody, it can sometimes feel forced and artificial.  Where can we find some real love!  Well I think God has a word for us this Valentine’s Day.

I John 4:10 This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for[a] our sins.

Love, real love,  is measured by the sacrifice God made for folk who do not love him back. He gave his adored Son, for folk who did not deserve it, so that those same folk could be close to him forever.  What an awesome privilege to know that you are loved and more importantly to have an opportunity to experience that love in a relationship with God through Jesus Christ!  Regardless of your earthly dating dilemma, take comfort in your loving relationship with God –believers.
