Happy Valentine’s Day. Valentine’s Day generally represents the celebration of love between couples. However, we should celebrate God’s perpetual and steadfast love for us and how we should love Him with our whole heart and love our neighbor. Love gives. Jesus loved us that He gave His life for you. It should be a celebration of relationships at all times even in difficult circumstances. Love never takes a holiday. We should walk in love as much as possible throughout the year.
Beloved let us love one another: for love is God… 1 John 4:7-8.Thank God for loving YOU . Celebrate the love of Jesus with the lonely, depressed, and broken hearted. Give them a hug, a card, a smile , an encouraging Word or a gift. Love gives. Love Never Takes A Holiday. Love God, your neighbor and one another. John 13:34-35
God is love. He wants us to demonstrate that love in our relationships with the “saved” and those who do not know Jesus Christ personally. We should live as a demonstration of His love, grace, mercy and truth so that we will glorify Him and so that someone may be saved, find hope, and know that the Lord and someone cares for them. Invite the Holy Spirit to search your heart to reveal areas where transformation needs to occur in you and in the church.
Significantly, the Lord wants us to walk in love so we can reach out and bless others – the hurting, the homeless and the helpless and those persons grieving from loss of loved ones, relationships, job and facing change. Let’s be sensitive as to how we show love for one another. Bear one another’s burdens (E.g. Galations 6:2) “Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you” (Eph. 4:32). Speak without accusing. James 1:19. Genuine love is not easily offended; it does not hold a grudge; it does not place expectation or demands on others; it is not conditional. Love is an action word.
