As I was looking at different posts on FB (which I do enjoy FB) but for the life of me I cannot imagine why anyone wants to share their drama on FB (okay, let me get off of that subject) I saw several posts pertaining to Valentine's Day. Some were negative posts stating how Valentine's Day is over-rated and too commercialized. (Which, what isn't anymore?) Some posts were lovely expressions of the Love that Jesus has for us...HE is our Valentine! I'm not here to get into the rights and wrongs of Valentine's Day. I want to share with you some words from Crazy Love that brings not just Valentines Day into perspective but EVERYDAY!
Crazy Love has got to be one of the best books I've ever read. Matter of fact I am on my 3rd time of reading it.
The very fact that God loves you and me is nothing short of astonishing. The wildest part is that Jesus doesn't have to LOVE us. His being is utterly complete and perfect, apart from humanity. He doesn't need me or you. YET, He wants us, chooses us, even considers us His inheritance. (Eph. 1:18)
The greatest knowledge we can ever have is knowing God treasures us.
The Holy Creator has set us apart as His Treasure!
What amazes me personally is that Jesus doesn't need me...yet HE WANTS ME...HE DESIRES ME...AND HE LOVES ME!
Do you want to know what Valentines Day truly is to the Christian?
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
