Happy Valentine's Day

philippe prosper valentines day

I think Valentine's day is an important Holiday because of what it represents. It's a day to stop and think about probably the most influential human emotion: Love. Love is the binding factor in human society. It is designed to bind, unify, and draw out the most noble and beautiful aspects of human character. It binds father to mother, sibling to sibling, friend to friend, and at it's most pure expression, drives us towards self sacrifice. It is fitting that the Bible says that God is love. Something so transformational and transcendent can only be an expression of the supernatural and divine. Romantic love is a beautiful aspect of it, but it's not representative of all that love is. At it's heart,  love is an unwavering sacrificial giving of One self.
If you have not heard it said to you today yet, I love you. I do.  Why? Because you are a divine creation worth all the love in the Universe. John 3:16. What's even more amazing than that, is the fact my Heavenly Father embodies love, and yes, He loves you.
Here is my Valentines Day card for ya (forgive the short hand from here on out, it's my preferred method of writing because I find more conversational). I pray that this will remind ya of Dad's ( God) love today and that You will be inspired and transformed by the following passages. I love you, Philippe

Psalm 100:5 For Yahweh is good, and His love is eternal; His faithfulness endures through all generations.

Zephaniah 3:17 The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.

1 Peter 5:6-7  Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you,  casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.

John 13:34-35  A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.  By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”

John 3:16 God so loved you that He gave his only son so that whoever (you) believes in Him, will no perish but have eternal life.

Romans 5:8 but God shows his love for you in that while you were still a sinner, Christ died for you.

Galatians 2:20  I live by faith in the Son of God. who loved me and gave himself for me.

Romans 8:37-38
neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

1 john 4:10-11
In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.


1 Peter 5:6-7  Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you,  casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
