“God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
In today’s techno-society of electronic communication, the handwritten love letter has become almost obsolete. In years past, to receive a letter from a loved one was something special, it still is. Words sent from far away connecting two hearts. Treasures kept for decades bundled together with a satin ribbon.
As we celebrate Valentines Day, a day set aside to celebrate love, let’s meditate on the greatest love of all time—the love of God for His creation, mankind.
“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called
children of God!” 1 John 3:1
A love so great that He would sacrifice His only Son for my sin and your sin.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whosoever believes
in Him would not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
The Bible, God’s word, is a love letter, always pointing toward Jesus. Always with the purpose of imparting His love for His children. His love letter is written to you. Not the you of your past or the you of your future, but the you today who surrenders to His love. That’s the you He pursues today, no matter where you’ve been or what you’ve done. Choose to accept His love written in red with blood shed for you on the cross. Choose Jesus.
Admit your sin. Believe Jesus is God’s Son and that he died and rose again for you. Confess Him as your Savior and Lord.
