Suddenly, it’s February. Valentine’s Day is almost here. So I felt like I need to talk about…LOVE!
As an author of Christian Romance (and Christian Romantic Suspense, but that’s outside the scope of this blog), I keep in mind that, at the end of the day, I am writing about two people falling in love with each other in the light of God’s pure and holy love. That is what I write about.
God is love!
“He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love” (I John 4:8).
Ultimately, speaking for myself, I cannot talk about true love without first acknowledging that God first loved us.
“Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins” (I John 4:10).
As I revise Book 8 and draft Book 10 in my Savannah Sweethearts series, I am reminded once again that without Jesus Christ, I can never truly experience God’s love. In fact, my entire series is about Christians seeking after God’s perfect will for their lives, and honestly, they will see God’s will more clearly if they experience God’s love in their hearts first.
“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).
Dear friend, do you know the love of God? Do you know of family members or loved ones who don’t know the love of God? If not, they can be sure today.
Jesus Christ Himself showed us God’s love when He went to the cross to die for our sins, was buried, and rose again to give us eternal life. Because I believe in Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior, I am saved forever, and in my heart, I know God’s love is with me.
Let me know in the comments below what Jesus Christ means to you and how you have experienced God’s love this year.
I mentioned the two books I’m writing right now, which should be out sometime this year (prayerfully sooner than later). But Book 7 is ready to be released worldwide on February 12, just in time for Valentine’s Day. I would like to give away 3 copies of this ebook to 3 people who comment. The giveaway ends on February 13, 2019.
Kiss You Now (Savannah Sweethearts Book 7) is the story of Priyanka Patel and Hunter Jacobs, two people at the crossroads of their careers, brought together by the circumstances of their lives to Savannah and Tybee Island, where they have to learn to seek God and rest in Him, in order to be able to love each other.
Don’t forget to comment about what Jesus Christ means to you and how God has shown His love to you.
May God bless you with more of His love this year!
Love in Christ,
