God's Love

February is here and apart from a momentary interest in groundhog behavior and an acknowledgment that this is Black History Month, most American’s associate Valentine’s Day with this month. On February 14th a grand hue and cry goes up coupled with an expectation to express love with cards, flowers, candy, dinner, or a day at the spa. Left out of this celebration is thanks or an acknowledgment that the originator of such a wonderful emotion is none other than God, Almighty.
Romans 5:8 states, “But God demonstrates his own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us (NKJV).” Such love is hard for us to comprehend and we cannot give God a box of chocolates or a bouquet, but we can show our love in the way Christ prescribed.  “If you love Me, keep My commandments (John 14:15, NKJV).” When we obey Christ we show God we love Him by showing obedient love to the Son. So let’s show the love this month.
                Stay Prayed Up,
