What does it mean to love as God asks us?

February 12, 2011
By The Rev. Joanne Glaser, Pastor of the Beverly, Belington and Tygarts Valley Presbyterian churches

"Love, love, love" sang the Beatles, "All you need is love." The Apostle Paul tells us that faith and hope are important, but the greatest thing is love. Jesus told us that "For God so loved the world" and Jesus reminds us that the greatest act of love is to lay your life down for someone. The Old Testament prophets gave their lives because of their love of God and their love of God's people. So as much as we read about love in scripture, love must be something God feels is important to those of us who profess to be the people of God. As Valentine's Day approaches, the "day of love," what does it really mean to love as God asks us to love?
