Title: God’s Valentine
CIS: God’s love is here for them today
God is Love and out of love created us(cut out a heart out of poster board)
1 John 4:8-9
Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
Creation of Man, tell about how God created them to love on them but that Adam and Eve sinned. Talk about how in chapter 3 God went looking for them because he wanted fellowship with them.
Sin entered through Adam (mark up the heart)
Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned
Adam’s Sin affects us all and while God does love us he must judge righteously
“Now may the Lord’s strength be displayed, just as you have declared: ‘The LORD is slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sin and rebellion. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation.’
How God Showed his Love to us (Paint red cross over black spots)
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
God’s love will lead and protect us
In your unfailing love you will lead the people you have redeemed. In your strength you will guide them to your holy dwelling. NIV
