February is here and everyone is getting ready for Valentine’s Day. People are decorating with pink and red and chocolates are going on sale!
I figured since February is labeled the Love Month, I would do a post on how much God loves each and every one of us.
First of all, I would like to start out with some scriptures about God’s love.
1 John 4:16 says,
“So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.”
I like this scripture because it tells us that God is love. That He loves us.
Then 1 John 4:19 says,
“We love because He first loved us.”
Think about that for a minute. We could not love if He had not loved us first. If He had not loved us enough to make us, then we would not even be here! So in return, we need to love Him, because “..He first loved us”.
John 15:13 says,
“Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for a friends.”
Wow. No love greater than if you die for your friends. Now that is love. Wouldn’t you like to be loved that much, to have someone die for you? Well, I have some news for you, you are loved that much! Jesus died for you and me because he calls us friends. He loves us that much. And He always will no matter what you have been through or what you have done.
I hope this short and sweet post encourages you show His love with your friends and tell them how much God loves them.
Have a blessed and wonderful day!
