Our Pastor’s Reflections
February is upon us and the stores will tell you that love looks like pink and red hearts, candies and stuffed animals. It happens every year. Ooey gooey love has taken over the stores.
Scripture would beg to differ.
God’s love is bigger, better and real. This month’s scriptures invite us to walk around in the deep and wide love of God. They also call us to practical ways to express that love.
Read again 1 Corinthians 13:4-8a, and hear what love looks like, what love calls us to and how love behaves. In Luke 5, hear Jesus’ call of love to follow and live love out. In Luke 6, Jesus will call us to hard love, love of enemy, love beyond our comfort zones and what love looks like up against the law.
God is love. 1 John 4:19-21 tells us why we love “ 19 We love because God first loved us. 20 Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen. 21 And he has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister.
Scripture isn’t easy but it helps learn and know the heart of God. May your February be full of love and may we express our love with more than a conversation
In Christ’s love,
