Will You Be My Valentine?

I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness.
Jeremiah 31:3

February! The month of love and romance. Stores come alive with hearts, candy, cards and flowers all designed to express one’s love. defines love as
1.    a strong affection for another
2.    a beloved person
3.    an unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another
4.    a score in tennis.
That last one is not very romantic.

God’s love varies greatly from human love, which is often conditional and fickle. His love endures forever (Psalm 107:1). It is unchanging despite our actions.

God’s love is
      great (Nehemiah 13:2)
      unfailing (Psalm 6:4)
      abounding (Psalm 8:5)
      priceless (Psalm 36:7)
      enduring (1 Chronicles 16:34)
      lavish (1 John 3:1)

We all have a deep longing to be loved. People desperately search for things or others to fill this vast emptiness. This elusive love can only be found in God. Only He can satisfy because He is love (1 John 4:8). 

God sent us our own personalized valentine - the Bible. The love of God pulsates throughout each page. His heart beats wildly as He pours out His love for us.

Do not be afraid, for I am with you (Isaiah 43:5). You are precious and honored in My sight, ...I love you (Isaiah 43:4). I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness (Jeremiah 31:3). Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet My unfailing love for you will not be shaken (Isaiah 54:10). I will not forget you!  See, I have engraved you on the palms of My hands (Isaiah 49:15b-16a).

To prove His love, God sent His Son to die for our sins so we could be with Him. For God so loved the world that He sent His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16).

Lord, I open my heart to your extravagant love.
