Will You Be Mine? 5 Verses on Love to Help You Celebrate Valentines Day

Will You Be Mine? This familiar question that appears on millions of valentines today all over the U.S. is also a question that God asks us every day. 

If you’ll be mine, says God, then the matter of LOVE is settled. In fact, living a life of love, according to Jesus, is the one aspect that is non-negotiable and it is that aspect that identifies a true Jesus-follower to the world. 

“By this (said Jesus) everyone will know that you are my followers, if you have love for one another.-John 13:35
