Happy Valentines Day to everyone! Tell someone you love them like your parents or your siblings. But especially tell Jesus you love him. (Here is my post on love. Be sure to check it out.)
Just take a look at how many times God’s name and the word love is mentioned in these bible verses. The word love is mentioned 310 times in the bible. Love and God go together, because love and God are mentioned in all these verses! To make that statement true it says in 1 John 4:8 God is love!
1 John 1:9 says We love Him because he first loved us.
1 John 3:16 also says We know what love is because Jesus Christ laid down his life for us.
1 John 4:8 Whoever does not love, does not know God, because God is love.
Mark 12:30-31 says And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
John 3:16 For God so LOVED the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.
1 John 3:1 See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him.
Psalm 136:26 Give thanks to the God of heaven, for his steadfast love endures forever.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
My mom always says “If you can’t love your brother (or sister) who you have seen how can you love God who you have not seen.” Like the song goes ……………
O how I love Jesus, O how I love Jesus, O how I love Jesus, because he first loved me!
So, tell someone you love them, but especially tell Jesus you love him!
Will you choose Jesus? Will you love him? Will you choose him for eternity?
Happy Valentines Day! May God Bless! ❤ ❤ ❤
