Love is in the air! Happy Valentine’s week! To celebrate, we have a great Valentine’s Day treat to share with you and some love notes from the creator of love Himself!
God sends his words of love to us:
1 John 4:16
And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.
God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.
The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying:
“I have loved you with an everlasting love;
I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.”
The Lord your God is with you,
the Mighty Warrior who saves.
He will take great delight in you;
in his love he will no longer rebuke you,
but will rejoice over you with singing.
You are loved deeply. You are valuable. You are celebrated. Praise God for His love and the love He shows us through the people He places in our lives!
