Inspiration from Plain Truth Ministries
(From the Feb. 08 PTM Partner Letter)
"Our relationship with God--our peace and rest in Christ--is more important than anything in this life. It is more important than the health we enjoy or the sickness we suffer. It's more important than a great relationship we may have with our chidren or a seemingly hopeless relationship we may be enduring. God wants us to know him. He wants us to know the power and extent of his love. He wants us to know that his love is a no-matter-what-love. God showed up at our slave auction. He did that, once and for all, in the Person of Jesus at the cross. He bought us back. He redeemed us. He paid the price with his own blood." (emphasis in original)
Now that's a real valentine.
