Happy Valentines Day my lovelies! I really love Valentines Day, it's not just a "Hallmark Holiday" to me. I think love is so important in our lives, I dont care how much denial someone is in, everyone needs it. And lets face it-if the world had more of it, itd be a much happier place, yes? So instead of posting something creative, I wanted to share some of my favorite bible verses that deal with this crazy roller coaster emotion. In my studies I have come across some really good ones! (NIV versions)
"Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm. For LOVE is as strong as death, its jealousy as unyielding as the grave. It burns like a blazing fire, like a mighty flame."
Song of Solomon 8:6
Woah. That's what Im talking about.
"Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth; for your LOVE is more delightful than wine."
Song of Solomon 1:2
Especially when you do the dishes...
"Better a meal of vegetables where there is LOVE than a fattened calf (prime-rib medium-rare) with hatred."
Okkkayy Okkaayy. It didnt say prime rib. Tomorrows lesson; Gluttony! LOL Just kidding!
"Greater LOVE has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends."
"Dear children, let us not LOVE with words or tongue, but with actions and in truth."
1 John 3:18 (soooo gooood!)
And 2 really important ones that show AGAPE LOVE;
"This is how we know what LOVE is; Jesus Christ laid down his life for us."
1 John 3:16
"But God demonstrates his own LOVE for us in this; while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."
Thats awesome! To know that even though we are sinners God loves us and made a way for us to spend eternity with Him?!?! Even by His own son having to die for us?!?! Now that's a real love story!
Have you told God lately that you Love Him?
Love you all! Good night!
