Saint Valentines Day.

14th February.

Lots of people are now in a mad rush to get their card in the post and/ or to prepare that special surprise? But what is lacking, is the fact that St Valentine is not one person but several all noted for doing their good deeds and not expecting anything in return. Luke 6:30-36. In fact that is how God wants us to do our good works, in secret and not seen by others. Some do what to be credited. Mathew 6:1-4.

But the day or evening is celebrated as one of romance and marriage, but it has become a tradition and like getting married. Many do it for the show, rather than for the commitment, and that is perhaps why so many fail when the storms come.

Marriage between a man and a woman was ordained by God. Genesis 2:18, 2:23-24. And we are warned that God does not like adultery to defile the marriage bed. Mark 10:6-9, Hebrews 13:4.

LOVE. 2.

Hate what is Evil and….

Love the truth, so that we can return to God an appreciate what Jesus has done for us!

Salvation came at a cost, blood was spilt to bring us into a New Life and Relationship with Him and our Father? Why then do we not believe the world of God, and why do we continue to live like the world?

Lifestyle is an excuse to refuse to change to the way that he wants us to be, less of self and more of Jesus? It is an honour to suffer for doing the right things, not a burden! Jesus went to the cross for us of His own choice!

Loving God is much more than the traditional Saint Valentines, when it is applied in Love and truth!

Exodus 20:20-23,   Job 31:11-12,   Isaiah 1:17,   Romans 1:27,   2 Thessalonians 2:10, James 1:27.

Love. Part-Two.

Application.

Today is Saint Valentines day, many will be celebrating it in the traditional sense with the special meal, red roses and the long awaited card. But in light of the recent storms and bad weather that has hit Canada and the U.S., Ireland and Britain many people will not be getting out tonight or even this weekend.

Many are either snowed in or flooded and this is a good time to share the love we have by making a hot drink, being a shoulder to cry on and providing some free accommodation. That is putting into practice what it is to be a ‘Christian.

To be a real believer in Jesus and to share His love in us, also allows us not to expect anything in return not even a thank you.

Matthew 5:40-48.

Saint Valentine Part-One.

Love, Romance and Marriage.

Many people will be preparing for that special romantic day on the 14th February. They will getting that Valentine card, the red roses, the chocolates for their loved one. Perhaps the girl/boy friend, the wife/husband of many years, even the secret lover, mistress.

God ordained for man not to be alone and in the process marriage was the result of a legal union between the man and woman. Jesus emphasized Marriage. So the result of any relationship between a man and a woman must be entered in to by Marriage.  Genesis 2:18-24,  Matthew 19:4-6,  Mark 10:6-9.

Anything and everything after that is from the selfishness of the heart, wanting its wants.
