Anyone who has ever been in love is familiar with love notes.

Do you remember those times when you wrote messages of adoration?

Do you remember receiving love notes… what they did for you, and what they did for your heart and for your relationship?

Just last week I received a beautiful love note.

A few days later I got one on the side of a cake box.

Love notes - this one was at the side of my birthday cake box

These love notes remind me of the one I received on the Mother’s Day after my grandma died.

And the one that I received after the roughest morning ever.

I clearly see these as love notes from God.

Why wouldn’t they be?

When I see them, I think of him. I know it’s him who sent them.

Sometimes I wonder if I’ve ever missed a love note from God. Maybe I was too busy to notice. Or perhaps he’s been sending them all along but because I didn’t know him, I didn’t see them.

Sometimes I wonder if I had been looking for a bouquet of roses and in doing so, I overlooked a post-it note of love.

As I reflect on these demonstrations of love, there is one love note that I cherish the most. It was the first note I received from him. It was the first time I encountered his message of love:

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

He loves me so much that he died for me.

He loves you so much that he died for you.

My friend, there is a love note with your name on it.

Have you looked for it? Have you seen it? Have you read it? Have you accepted it?

Nothing would delight God more than for you to accept the note that he’s left just for you.
