We hear these words every year on February 14th! Usually from a lover, but sometimes from a mother, father, brother, or sister. We all melt when we hear this. Right? We all say “Oh how sweet, of course I will.” We normally don’t turn them down. Valentines is made for lovers. We are supposed to show our love to another person. I can’t say that a guy besides a family member has asked me that. And that is OK! Do you want someone to ask you (besides a family member)? Guess what?? Someone already is. In fact He asks every day! You say who?? Who could want me that much?
GOD. God wants you that much! There is nothing more romantic. I think this valentines you should answer God. Or turn the question around on Him. Ask Him, “Will you be my valentine, God?” Let me tell you, He will not turn you down!!! He wants to be in a relationship with you. He wants you to live with Him FOREVER. You can’t tell me that that is not romantic. He loves you!! And he wants you to love Him too. Will you answer Him this valentines day, or ignore Him? He wants YOU.
“And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.” Deuteronomy 6:5
Do you know the results you will get by doing this??
“And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.”
1 John 4:21
We will be able to love others more!! Can you imagine loving your family more or your husband/boyfriend more ? Well you can. By loving God and being CLOSER to Him, he shows us how to be closer to all other relationships.
We can say we love our friends but if we do not love God then we do not know what or how to love.
“Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.” 1 John 4:7
No wonder the divorce rate is high! All these people don’t know God, so therefore do not know how to love. God shows us the perfect picture of Love.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.” John 3:16-17
He loves you so much that he sent His son to die so that we might be saved!!
“Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind…….And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.” Matthew 22:37,39
He tells us again! Love God with all your heart, soul and mind, and THEN you will love your neighbor as yourself. You will put others first and love them just as much as yourself.
Would you like to know how to love more? I sure would!
Have you been ignoring God? He wants you so much. God is asking you to let Him come in your life. Don’t miss out on the BEST relationship you could have in your life. He will love you more than anyone, take care of you more than anyone. If you are waiting for prince charming, let God be your Prince, then when your earthly prince comes along you will know better how to love and care for him.
So ladies, I have a test for you! This valentines day spend time with HIM, at least for a couple of hours. You will see that He does care for you and love you, you will see that you care for Him and love Him. Then you will say YES!! Tell others how much you love them as well, but spend most of your time with Him this valentines day, He will be thrilled. As will you!:)
