Alone on Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is promoted as the most romantic day of the year, but it serves as a sharp reminder for those who are alone. They often feel like no one cares about them and may be pushing through feelings of sadness and depression. This same feeling can even be seen in the Bible. The psalmist said, “No one is concerned for me … no one cares for my life” (Psalm 142:4).

If you are feeling depressed at the thought of being alone on Valentine’s Day, consider this—the most special Person in the universe loves you. In fact, He loves you so much that He gave His life for you. This isn’t some temporary or short-term love because He has known you since before you were born.

It’s OK to feel lonely and down. It’s normal to cry, but don’t forget God is with you and ready to fill you. Another Psalm says, “He heals the brokenhearted and bandages their wounds” (Psalm 147:3). He cares for your hurting heart during this season.

Not only does God want to embrace you—He wants you to come to Him as well. Through a one-on-one relationship with God, made possible through His Son Jesus Christ, you can find peace for today and direction for your future. He can guide you in every area of life, including your relationships.

Will you let God fill your heart this Valentine’s Day?

Step 1 – God’s Purpose: Peace and Life

God loves you and wants you to experience peace and eternal life.

The Bible says:

"We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ."
Romans 5:1

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life."
John 3:16

"I [Jesus] have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly."
John 10:10

What keeps us from having the life God planned for us?

Step 2 – The Problem: Our Separation from God

God created us in His image. He gave us a will and the freedom of choice; we choose to disobey Him and go our own way—which is called sin. This separates us from God.

The Bible says:

"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."
Romans 3:23

"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Romans 6:23

Our choice to sin separates us from God. People have tried many ways to bridge this gap between themselves and God.

The Bible says:

"There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death."
Proverbs 14:12

"But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear."
Isaiah 59:2

No bridge reaches God... except one.

Step 3 – God’s Bridge: The Cross

Jesus Christ died on the cross and rose from the grave. When He did He paid the penalty for our sin and bridged the gap between us and God.

The Bible says:

"For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus."
1 Timothy 2:5

"For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God."
1 Peter 3:18

God has provided the only way back to Him. You must make a choice.

Step 4 – Our Response: Receive Christ

We must trust and receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

The Bible says:

"Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God."
John 1:12

"If you declare with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved."
Romans 10:9

Which side are you on? The side with Christ or without Him?

Here is how you can accept Christ into your life:

We suggest a prayer like this one:

"Dear God, I know I’m a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe Jesus Christ is Your Son. I believe that He died for my sin and that you raised Him to life. I want to trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as Lord, from this day forward. Guide my life and help me to do your will. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen."
