Happy Valentines Day

2006-01-21 Ring of loveWe pray you have an amazing Valentines day today. Jesus said in John 15:12 “This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.” He also said in John 13:35 “By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” The measure of our walk with God is measured by how well we love. Love in God isn’t some nebulous romantic feeling. Instead it is a solid firm foundation of commitment and self-sacrifice for Jesus and for our brothers and sisters in God. Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 “Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” Simply put love isn’t just a word, love looks like something. Today put your love in action amid the romance of the holiday and step out and meet someones need in a practical way. Shine the love of Jesus to the world around you.

How can we be thankful in all circumstances? By seeing from God’s perspective. His grace Has saved you and He is transforming you into His image. You will be with Him forever and each day is an opportunity to reveal Him to the world around you. Thank Him for each moment and shine His light everywhere you go.

Always remember Christ’s redeeming work in your life. You were bought with a precious price and transformed out of darkness and into light. He paid for your freedom, so remain free. He forgave your sin, so live fully in His grace. Grace will enable you to walk in freedom and victory over sin.
