Every year, thousands of heartfelt messages are inscribed upon the most beautifully decorated Valentine’s Day cards. At any drug store, you’ll find them neatly displayed on the greeting card isle in every conceivable category. They come in all shapes and sizes. Most contain flowery words and the romantic prose but, none of them can drive home the message more poignantly then the simple invitation to “Be Mine.” Now talk about NOT mincing your words! That rather bold command is undoubtedly an earnest expression of an inward desire to claim one’s love interest.
I have to confess, the Cinderella in all of us gals would gladly pass up the lace trimmed box of chocolates, the long stemmed roses, and even the glass slipper to hear that no nonsense invitation coming from the heart of our Prince Charming!
Most assuredly, many well-known greeting card companies have hired the best and most prolific writers in an attempt to try to come up with new and more innovative ways to say those three longed for words… “I Love you.” Yet none of them can come close to the most beautiful expression of love ever recorded in history. “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever should believe on Him, should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
For God Himself is LOVE! (John 4:16). His love is unconditional and all encompassing. He longs to embrace us and hold us close to His heart as He softly whispers “Be Mine.”
Would you like to receive a very special Valentine this year? The truth is…it has already been sent to you. It arrived “Special Delivery” two thousand years ago by way of God’s only begotten Son, Jesus Christ. He longs to bring his message of love to you and transform “all your days” into Valentine’s Day!
Happy Valentine’s Day and Many Blessings!
