Valentine wasn’t a sweetie

Valentine wasn’t a sweetie! He was a courageous man who was murdered for refusing to deny his faith in the living Jesus. 

Religious syrup is sticky and puts out God’s inner fire. However, daily reading the Bible with an open heart will stir up your love for God and make you courageous like St. Valentine.

True love cares enough to get to know people who are different than you and to show compassion for their struggles. When love is just a feeling, it waffles and needs syrup to sweeten it. When it’s an irrefutable commitment, love never fails. Love enough to give more than stuff.

A relationship that doesn’t result in open, honest, heart-to-heart intimacy, is falling far short of its potential. Sharing other people’s loving words on a card is nice, but expressing love with your own heart-felt words is the very best. Express your love today.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @
