Happy Valentine's Day Kids! from Gramma Cherbear
My children, come. Listen to me.
I will teach you to have respect for the Lord.
Psalms. 34:11

I want you to know!

 Jesus loves you!
Your Valentine from Jesus!

These are some of the ways the Bible tells us so!
Jesus says that if people love little children the way he does,
it shows that they love God too!

"Anyone who welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me,
And anyone who welcomes me doesn't welcome only me but also the One who sent me."
Mark 9:37
Jesus blesses little children!
Then he took the children in his arms. He put his hands on them and blessed them.
Mark 10:16

Jesus says He wants all children to know him.
One day they will see heaven!

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, don't keep then away,
for the kingdom of heaven belongs to people like them."
Matthew. 19:14

When we ask Jesus to live in our hearts, and believe he is the Son of God,
he will forgive our sins if we ask him.
Then we can live forever with God and he will call us His children!
Some people did accept him. They believed in his name.
He gave them the right to become children of God.
John 1:12

God says that he created you to be a blessing and a gift to your parents.
Children are a gift from the Lord. They are a reward from Him. Psalms 127:3

Stay with God's teaching from His Word,
so you will not be fooled by false teachers!
Dear children, do not let anyone lead you astray. 1 John 3:7

God says you are special,
and people who love many children are blessed!

Blessed are those who have many children. Psalms 127:5

God loves you and wants you to try to be and act like His Son, Jesus!
You are the children that God dearly loves. So be just like him. Ephesians 5:1

God has such a strong love for us that he wants to call us his children!
How great is the love the Father has given us so freely. Now we can be called children of God!
1John 3:1

When Jesus went up to Heaven,
He sent his Holy Spirit to live inside of every one who believes in him.
So we CAN know that He is God! and we belong to him!

The Spirit himself joins with our spirit. Together they give witness that we are God's children.
Romans 8:16

"animated.gif (c) Kitty Roach."

God wants us to show others that we are his children by the way we act.
We are to act with love and kindness to others!

Dear children, don't just talk about love. Put your love into action. Then it will truly be love.
1John 3:18

One way we can show that we love others,
is by doing what God tells us to do in the Bible!

This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands.
1John 5:2

"animated.gif (c) Kitty Roach."

He tells us that the most important thing is to love Him with all our hearts,
souls and minds and even all our strength!
And to love others and then to love ourselves!

Jesus Replied, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all you soul. Love him with all you mind.

This is the first and most important commandment. And the second is like it. Love your neighbor as you love yourself."

Matthew 22:37-38

Always remember........JOY!

 J - Jesus - First
