This Valentine’s Day, you might express your love through chocolates, red roses, or a fancy dinner. You might feel the pressure of getting the restaurant reservation you want. Or maybe you’ll give out pink candies to coworkers.
You can give something to God this Valentine’s Day, too.
God doesn’t ask for expensive gifts or an overpriced Hallmark card. He wants one thing: for you to continually accept and know his love.
To understand his great love for you, all you have to do is read the Bible—his love letter to the world.
As you celebrate Valentine’s Day with those you love, take time to reflect on God’s enduring love for you. And ask yourself how you might give God’s love to others in return. Get started with these 5 Valentines from God’s Word:
“My love for you is faithful.”
Remember that the Lord your God is the only God and that he is faithful. He will keep his covenant and show his constant love to a thousand generations of those who love him and obey his commands. — Deuteronomy 7:9 (GNTD)
“My love for you is forever.”
Give thanks to the Lord, because he is good;
his love is eternal.
Give thanks to the greatest of all gods;
his love is eternal.
Give thanks to the mightiest of all lords;
his love is eternal. — Psalm 136:1-3 (GNTD)
“Nothing can stop me from loving you.”
For I am certain that nothing can separate us from his love: neither death nor life, neither angels nor other heavenly rulers or powers, neither the present nor the future, neither the world above nor the world below—there is nothing in all creation that will ever be able to separate us from the love of God which is ours through Christ Jesus our Lord. — Romans 8:38-39 (GNTD)
“My love for you is greater than you could ever imagine.”
…I pray that Christ will make his home in your hearts through faith. I pray that you may have your roots and foundation in love, so that you, together with all God's people, may have the power to understand how broad and long, how high and deep, is Christ's love. — Ephesians 3:17-18 (GNTD)
“I want you to share my love with others.”
No, the Lord has told us what is good. What he requires of us is this: to do what is just, to show constant love, and to live in humble fellowship with our God. — Micah 6:8 (GNTD)
