One of the definitions of the word ‘Valentine’ in the Merriam-Webster’s dictionary is “a sweetheart who is chosen.”
Jesus, the Beloved (sweetheart) of God (Ephesians 1:6) was chosen (Isaiah 53:10) as the perfect acceptable sacrifice (Hebrews 10:1-18). God loved this world so much that he gave us, The Valentine, Jesus Christ, so that everyone who believe in him shall be his valentine (John 3:16) – for those who belong to Christ are God’s (1 Corinthians 3:23), a chosen generation (of sweetheart) (1 Peter 2:9).
Points to ponder:
God has made it possible for you to be his valentine, by his beloved son, Jesus Christ, The Valentine, chosen and given for the world. The question is, is God your valentine?
John 3:16 (KJV)
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
1 Corinthians 3:23 (KJV)
23 And ye are Christ’s; and Christ is God’s.
1 Peter 2:9 (KJV)
