GOD'S VALENTINE TO YOU

 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 
Romans 5:8

JESUS LOVES YOU

I know you are broken
and
I know you are just breathing -
barely -
I know you are feeling
alone and no one cares

at all.

I know you’ve cried
a thousand and more times
I know you believe you
cannot go on.
I know
because I’ve been there.

I’ve been broken
I’ve been on my last breath
I’ve been alone  - and -
I’ve shed the tears.
I’ve believed I could not go on

BUT

My Father in Heaven gave Me the will
to continue to be that broken One.
For you, for all.

I took the pain, I bore the rejection
I laid down My life so that
you can go on with yours.

Trust Me
Climb into My Father’s Lap
Let Us show you what love really is

WHO
love really is
.

Do you know this song? Maybe you remember it from your childhood? 
 “Jesus loves me this I know
for the Bible tells me so
Little ones to Him belong
they are weak but He is strong.

Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
The Bible tells me so.”

Sometimes it is hard to believe that Jesus does love us. Just because the Bible tells us He does, doesn’t mean we really believe it or accept it.

Sometimes life brings us to our knees because we feel so broken. So disillusioned. Disappointed. Sometimes we just want to end it all because we just feel like we can’t go on.

Jesus knows exactly how you feel. He was called all kinds of names. He was He was broken for you. His blood was spilled out for you on a cross that took Him to depths of death we will never know. He went through every thing we have ever been through.  (Hebrews 4:15) 

Why? Why would Jesus do that? Why would He go through all of that?

Because He loves you!
JESUS LOVES YOU

God sent you the best Valentine you can ever receive. His Son, His only begotten Son, came to earth as a baby, grew up to die on a cross for your sins and to give you new life in Him. He died to keep you from Hell and to give you Heaven. He rose from the grave to show us that He is still alive and ready to be our Lord and Savior forever if we will accept His free gift of life. Life eternal.

God sent a Valentine especially for you. I pray you will receive His gift of salvation today.

  2. He understands the frustration of living in a body that always has something wrong with it, and sends the blessing of His comfort.
