Remember Your Valentine (#333)
Bible version used: NKJV
Remember Your Valentine
Valentine was the name of a young man who lived in Rome many, many years ago during a time when people were killed for following Jesus.
Valentine did what he could to protect his Christian friends. After a time he was caught and put in prison. In prison he gave his heart to Jesus. Because of this, he was clubbed to death on February 14, 269.
While he was in prison, he sent messages to his friends saying: “Remember your Valentine” and “I love you.”
"Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends." John 15:13
Valentine loved others. He helped them and eventually gave his life for them.
Jesus also loves others—so much that He gave His life for them. The Bible says: “God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that, while we were still sinners, Christ (Jesus) died for us.” Romans 5:8
Jesus also left many messages before he returned to heaven. They are found in the Bible. Here are just a few of them:
In Mark 10:14, Jesus talks about His love for children: “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God.”
In John 10:10, Jesus talks about true happiness: “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
In John 14:6, Jesus says He is the only way to God: “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
