Valentines Day has different meanings for different people. Some will tell you Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate romance and love and even have a whole valentines week activities planned. Some others may argue that the true origins of this festival of love, candy and cupids are actually dark, bloody and a bit muddled and others will simply say Jesus is love. Whatever the case depending on which side of the argument you are, just know that if no one loves you, Jesus loves you and his love is steadfast. Lamentations 3:22 The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end;
Many people are excited and making big plans for Valentines Day 2018. However, while many children of the Kingdom know that they are deeply loved, not everyone experiences this ultimate love because they do not know Christ. For some people February is the only special time for love because their surroundings have limited them to love to only mattering in February.
Everyday is love day for children of God. We celebrate love daily because love first loved us and continuously loves us. Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this; While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. In John 3:16 it tells us that “For God loved the world in this way: so much that he would give up his Son, The Only One, so that everyone who trusts in him shall not be lost, but he shall have eternal life.”




Valentines Day can sometimes have wrong motives linked to it; from consumerism to Fornication for those who are unmarried with a lack of self control. 1 Peter 1:22 tells us that ‘Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, from a pure heart.’ Our loving one another doesn’t have to be tied to giving gifts (Nothing wrong with giving gifts by the way) but just making certain the celebration of love is pure is important.

If you don’t feel that as a Christian you can celebrate valentines day, no one should judge you about it and if you feel you feel you want to celebrate then that’s your conviction too and no one should place guilt on you.  Remember if you feel unloved or you’re single, don’t get discouraged; rather, be happy, and don’t feel obligated to go on a date, just because you don’t want to feel lonely. Love can happen when we least expect it.But most importantly get excited because you have the ultimate love of Christ. Get excited for things to come and keep praying for your perspective partner and in the mean time enjoy your single life.

I want you to consider a new concept this Valentines Day based on this scripture; Genesis 50:20

Max Lucado said; In God’s hands intended evil becomes eventual good.

This Valentine’s Day consider giving, as an individual or with your partner, love. Generous love is when we give without expecting anything in return. This could be in the form of an unexpected thank you note or buying a coffee for the person behind you in the queue.
