A Month Filled With Love

By Sarina Villalpando

 

 

February is the month of love and appreciation for the people you have to cherish. I thought why not make this month special by filling every day with our love for God and his love for us (even though that should be an everyday occurrence). Take a verse every day in the morning and make your days focus on fully understanding the love inside it, because face it, the love that God has for us is the most love any of us will ever see.

• “We love because he first loved us” – 1 John 4:19

• “So Jacob served seven years for Rachel, and they seemed to him but a few days because of the love he had for her” – Genesis 29:20

• “My beloved is mine and I am his; he pastures his flock among the lilies.” – Song of Solomon 2:16

• “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

• “God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” – Romans 5:8

• “Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.” – Romans 5:2-5

• “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that 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.” – Romans 8:37-39
