On This Valentine's Day ...

Seattle Presbytery

On Valentine's Day the whole culture seems to fall in love, or want to. 
 
The reality is that the “love” of Valentines Day pales in a reflection on God’s love for us, and the need for us to share and show that love to others.
 
As 1 John 4:7-11 says: Beloved, let us love one another, because love is from God; everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, for God is love. God's love was revealed among us in this way: God sent his only Son into the world so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins. Beloved, since God loved us so much, we also ought to love one another.
 
This Valentine week may be a fitting time for us to explore, and renew our commitments to make God’s love known in the world.
 
This week the Mission Yearbook lifts up ministry in Africa.

"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you'' (Matthew 28:19).
 
Have you ever heard the words "the church in Africa is a mile wide and an inch deep?'' While, as is the case in America, there are areas where this is true, in even more places the African church is deep and wide. Countless congregations exemplify a deep understanding of the gospel as they obey Jesus' commands to evangelize, heal, and proclaim justice in an integrated manner.
 
It is fun to share candy, flowers, and heart shaped gifts.  It is also fun and much more meaningful to give your heart in genuine love, first to God who loves us beyond measure, and then to others, near and far.   When we actively love in this way it is mission and ministry
 
The presbytery, General Assembly, the whole church, and your congregation are active in mission and ministry in many ways.  How are you participating?  Where are you personally involved in mission and ministry; making known the love of God in Christ?
 
Prayer from the Mission Yearbook:
Gracious God, our hearts sing praises to you as we hear about the tremendous growth of your church in Africa. We are thankful for our African brothers and sisters and PC(USA) mission workers who are faithfully telling and living out the gospel in contexts of war, poverty, and disease. May your Holy Spirit empower and equip them so that your love for the "least of these'' may be evident. In Jesus' name. Amen.
