It is Saint Valentine’s Day once again. Suddenly our love for one another is awakened again.
But beyond the usual focus on couples’ love, friendship love and family love that pervades the air in times like this, how about talking about the love of God for us too?
The love of God is the greatest love there is. It is the love for all seasons.
Those who neglect the love of God will never ever be able to truly love. It is God who gives us the capacity to love.
God has put His love in our hearts.
And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love. Romans 5:5.
Valentine’s day should not make you go searching for love in the wrong places. Neither should you go doing things that make it look like you are desperate for love.
God’s love is already given; and God’s love is for you. It is reliable and available every time.
Here are 6 Unique Reasons You Should fully embrace the Love of God
- You are already infinitely loved by God.
Even if no one else loves you, be aware that God loves you beyond measure. He loved you before you were born, He loves you till now and will continue to love you for the rest of your life.
God proved that His love for you has not limit when He gave His son to die for you.
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 NIV
- God’s love for you is unconditional.
If God was looking to love only those that measured up to His standards, then He would have no one to love, because none of us would qualify.
God loves you because God is love. His love for you does not depend on what you did or what you didn’t do. He loves you irrespective of your individual performance – whether you measure up or not.
Does that sound too good to be true? But it is the gospel truth!
- God’s love is all inclusive.
Whether you are a Christian or not, whether you believe in God or not, whether you are black or white, male or female, whether you are homosexual or heterosexual, God loves you.
Whatever you are and wherever you are in the world, God loves you. There is no one in the whole wide world that God doesn’t love.
God loves you the way you are. But He will never leave you the way you are. His love is a life-transforming love – His love will change you for the better.
- Nothing can separate you from the love of God.
God will never walk away from you. He will never break your heart if you embrace His love. And no circumstance is strong enough to separate you from the love of God.
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? Romans 8:35 NIV
God is the most faithful lover there is. He sticks with you in good and in bad times, every time.
- You can experience God’s great love which He offers to you freely.
God’s love has been bestowed on all mankind; It is already given to all. All you have to do is to receive it. You receive it through simple faith in Jesus Christ.
Receiving the love of God into your heart will be the greatest experience of your life. It will transform you in many ways.
- If you accept the love of God into your life and live by it, it will preserve your heart on earth and prepare it for eternity. This is a bargain that is available only in Jesus Christ. You cannot get it anywhere else.
Your heart will never be satisfied until it embraces the love of God. Valentine’s Day love will come and go but the love of God remains. God’s love is love for all seasons. Embrace it now.
