Expressions of Love

 

I am sure you have probably heard the expression, “Christianity isn’t a religion but a relationship.” This slogan highlights in people’s hearts the necessity of having a true relationship with Jesus. I certainly am in agreement with that.

Let me pose a valentine question to you. How will you express your love to your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day? Will you give her candy, flowers, a card, or maybe a dinner out? And ladies, what about your special man? Will you give him, a nice shirt, maybe a tool he has been wanting, or maybe a favorite meal he likes?

Expressions of love are always welcomed among lovers. I have learned over the years that expressions of love which reflect the fact that they were well thought out, are usually the ones best received.

If that is true in the natural, what about the relationship you have with Jesus? What expression of your love for Him are you going to give this Valentine’s day?

Do you want me to give you a gift idea? Well I won’t do that! Instead do what husbands and wives have done for many years. Listen for hints, subtle suggestions that slip out during conversations with the one you love.

For that to happen you will have to get close to the Lord and take the time to listen. Trust me in this, He will give you the hint, if you are willing and open to receive it.

Proverbs 8 verse 17
“I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.”
