Okays, first uu make a text ;D
eg --

Go to Layer / Layer to picture size. Now your text-layer should be the same size as the canvas.

Now --
Right click on the layer on the layers window and go down to "Selection from Alpha"
Go to Select tab, click on Grow and put in 3pix or as big as you want the glow
Now uu press ctrl + shift + n -- which makes a new layer ;D
Fill the selection with the color of your glow

Press ctrl + shift + A to select nothing.

Ohhkays, now go to the tab Filter then to Blur and click on Gaussian make it 45px.
Duplicate the layer and apply a gaussian blur again at 30px.

Now, click the glowing text-layer in the layers window to use it.
Duplicate it -- on the duplicate apply another gaussian blur. Use 15pix.
Now, set the layers mode (found in the layers window at the very top above the opacity) to Dodge.

You know duplicate the layer -- in the layers window move it to the top -- above the other layers. Set the layers to Dodge again.
This step makes the glow effect even prettier (;


Enjoy ;D
