For God SO LOVED…

Today, people all over the world will celebrate Valentine's Day.  It is one of my wife's favorite holidays and one of mine, too:)  As much love as we have for each other...husbands and wives...parents and children...family and friends, we need to remember who loved us first and just how much He loves us still.  1 John 4:10 says, "This is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins."  1 John 4:19 goes on to tell us, "We love because He first loved us." And then we read John's gospel in John 3:16, "For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life."  I love that description at the beginning of that verse:  "GOD SO LOVED!!!"  He loved us "first," and He "so loved" us.  That is what I like to call "Godmazing!"  You may ask, "How could God love me?"  You may even say, "There's no way God could love me like that."  I want to remind you of what Paul tells us in Romans 5:8.  He says, "But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us."  I don't care how bad or how dirty you think you are.  I don't care how unloveable you think you are.  GOD SO LOVES YOU!!!  Believe it today!  Celebrate it today!  Happy Valentine's Day:)

I would love to hear your comments...
