God is love. The first Valentine was sent by our mighty God to His eternal family, and that is us. As we were birthed, God's evil enemy tried to hijack us and bring us to His dungeon of evil. He succeeded with Adam and Eve as they betrayed God and believed satan's smooth lies and innuendos. They disobeyed the Almighty. That sin passed down through Adam's genes to us. First man and his wife were kicked out of the Garden of Eden and made to work hard for their survival. God punished His children but He did not abandon them. God's Son, Jesus, came to Earth, and was born of a precious woman named Mary. What was it like, do you think to raise a God-man? Mary's heart was broken when she watched her beloved son's tortured and severely beaten body hung on a cross to die. Jesus took on this agony for you and me. It was the only way that the betrayal could be redeemed~ for an innocent God-man [One was the offended] [one was the offender] to suffer and die. It was an awful mission, but because of Jesus great love for us, He was willing to go through it.
God Himself allowed this to happen for His tremendous love and affection for you and me. What greater love. . .
Jesus was the first "Valentine".
So as you give or send a Valentine card to a special person, just remember the One who is Love and sent His own Son as an act of the greatest love; it contains salvation: when we accept God's love gift, Jesus, as our Lord and Savior, we we are freed from satan's enslavement, brought into God's eternal family, find our purpose in life, and become a new creation able to live with the joy of God Himself within our own spirit.
My friends, choose to accept Jesus' great sacrifice for yourself; tell God you are sorry for your sin and want Him to be the Lord of your life! Enter into the eternal family and discover who you were truly born to be. I love you!
