Why Jesus Will Always Be My Valentine

blog-jesus-valentine

Hey guys,

I wanted to share with you my sentiments on Valentine’s Day.

For those of you who don’t know, I was born in February, therefore making me a pisces.

With this in mind, we are known for being hopeless romantics. That is definitely the case with me.

I love “love”. I love the idea of romance and building relationships romantically and platonically.

However, Valentine’s Day has always been one of those days that I have found somewhat overrated.

Yes, I agree that there should be a day dedicated to  appreciating the ones you “love”, but I feel as though you should do that everyday.

I find it baffling that we spend so much time, effort, and money on material things for people. But if you put it into perspective, how much time and effort are you putting into loving and appreciating your Savior.

This is why Jesus will always be my Valentine.

No, I am not cursing myself into permanent singleness and solitude. When I do get into a relationship, I will have an official “Valentine.”

Nonetheless, I am saying that Jesus is and should always be the love of your life.

Here are some reasons why he is the perfect “Valentine.”

Unconditional Love

God is our creator. He made us in his image and sent his son Jesus to die to pay the price of our sins. His love for us is deeper and greater than any human being can possibly have.  Even when we do wrong and we fall on the wayside, he is still there for us. He will never let us done.

Far Beyond the Physical

Focusing too much on the physical aspect of a relationship can hinder the emotional connection. However, with Jesus, you don’t have to worry about that. When you connect with God, the intimacy that you share with him goes far beyond any physical relations.

Stress Free

When you are single and make God your Valentine, you don’t have to worry about scurrying to find the perfect gift. The only gift that God wants from you is you. He wants to know you and to be able to have a relationship with you. He’s not looking for what he can take from you. Rather, he wants to give you an abundant life.

While there are many more reasons why Jesus is the best Valentine. I feel as those three summed it up pretty nicely.

That’s all for now.

Have a blessed day,
