As Valentine’s Day approaches, I think of how a woman responds to her man’s love toward her… and this is much like a Believer responds to Christ’s love. It is HE, the LOVER, that woos his BRIDE, the Church, just as a man on Valentine’s Day and every day, shows his woman his love. She “responds” to His perfect love. And as she realizes how wonderful he really is,and takes note of all the special “kisses of love” and “gestures of affection” throughout the day, this perfect love drives out all fear that may still be within her. Faith is the result of her trusting in Her Beloved. This faith enables her to say “yes” to his proposals, and to go anywhere with her lover. For it is HE whom her heart loves. She is FREE in His Love. She responds wholeheartedly!
Oh that we would all know the riches of the love of Christ. What a Valentine we have!
“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39
We love him, because he first loved us. I John 4:19
There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. I John 4:18
Couples, enjoy your Valentine’s Day tomorrow, and the precious love that is between you… and let Christ’s love be shared in that celebration. And a truth remains: Christian Singles – You ARE loved, with a perfect love, and Christ is a wonderful “Valentine”, in that His perfect love can satisfy your need to be loved and to cast out any fearful lie that may desire to come on you, that you are not loved. YOU ARE LOVED WITH A PERFECT LOVE.
Be full of joy!!… LOVE HIM… and choose to be HIS VALENTINE tomorrow and always, CELEBRATING His great love for you!
His Word is his “Love Letter” to you…maybe tomorrow you should try writing HIM a love letter! (smile)
