On Valentine’s day, there are some who are blessed to have someone in their life that loves them dearly as their valentine, while there are many who are single, either by the death of their loved one or due to broken relationships that need reconciling, and they are seeking for the love of their life. Some are expressive of their feelings of love to the other, while others are not only bottled in but in some cases non-responsive. So while Valentine’s day is celebrated as a day of joy, it is in essence a day of mixed emotions.
In the midst of this, as I pondered of God’s love for each one of us, I realized that, unlike the conditional and wavering expressions of love by us humans, God’s love is not dependent on the extent of love that we have for him. We love him, because he first loved us. In other words, God takes the first step to love us, i.e., God’s love is INITIATING.
Not only is God’s an initiating valentine, God’s love is INSEPARABLE. There is nothing, absolutely nothing that can separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus (our Lord). Neither death, nor life (physical dimension), nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers (spiritual dimension), nor things present, nor things to come (temporal dimension), nor height, nor depth (spatial dimension), nor any other creature (everything else dimension), can make God not be our valentine (Romans 8:38-39).
Points to ponder:
God’s love is INITIATING and it takes two to Tango. God has taken the first step to be your valentine. Have you taken your step to be his?
God’s love is INSEPARABLE . There is nothing, absolutely nothing, that can keep God from being our valentine. What is preventing you from being his?
1 John 4:19 (KJV)
19 We love him, because he first loved us.
Romans 8:38-39 (KJV)
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
