U Matters - 14 Feb 2019

by Pastor Michele on February 14, 2019

Valentine greetings were popular as far back as the Middle Ages, and written Valentine’s cards became popular in the 1400’s. Today, it is estimated that 145 million Valentine’s Day cards are sent each year, which makes it the second largest card-sending holiday of the year (Greeting Card Association).

For some, today can be a difficult day. Whether you received a Valentine’s card or not, we need to remember that we have regular access to the greatest book of love ever, the Bible. The Bible is a tremendous love story between God and His people, and provides a tremendous opportunity for us to be reminded of how deeply loved we are. We need to know the depth of God’s love. There are so many ‘cards’ to choose from, consider these:

• See what great love the Father has lavished on us (you). That we (you) should be called children of God! And that is what we (you) are. 1 John 3:1
• God demonstrates his own love for us (you) in this; while we (you) were still sinners, Christ died for us (you). Romans 5:8
• The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing. Zephaniah 3:17
• For God so loved the world (you), that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
• There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear. 1 John 4:18

On behalf of the Staff and Leaders at Union Church we want to say Happy Valentine’s Day. It is our hope that you know the deep deep love that God has for you and your family, and may you know that you are loved and are an important part of the family at Union Church.

With love,
Pastor Michele
