February is the ‘Month of Love’ – a time for Valentine’s Day and remembering love – a time to emphasise the importance of love in our lives and others, but the greatest love anyone has shown is what God did for us all.
John 3:16 reminds us all, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His Only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.”
Romans 5:8 says, “God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
1 John 3:1 – “How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!”
Right through scripture God continually affirms His love for us. When we feel lost, lonely, hurt, or discouraged all we need to do is read His love letter to us…

Jesus came to reveal His Father to us. His desire was that the love the Father had for Him would be in us too. His passion was that we would know and experience His Father’s heart just as He had known and experienced this amazing love from the very beginning. What a privilege it is to be part of this powerful love affair.
If you want to experience and continually be loved unconditionally I encourage you to say this simple prayer with me and you too can be a son/daughter of God, the Almighty.
Father, I thank You for sending Your only Son Jesus to reveal your amazing love for me. I am overwhelmed at the truth and I can share in the same relationship with you that Jesus had from the very beginning. By faith I receive your love through the life of my Saviour and Lord, Jesus Christ. Thank You for being my loving Dad. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen!
