September 24, 2017 ACT IN LOVE
We have all been in love at one time or another. New love feels so good. We find no wrong and we want to spend every day with them. We think about them non-stop. When we are in love, others can see it as well. It’s easy to pick out two people who are in love because of their actions. Love is an action. It’s not just a word. Many people say they love but they don’t show it. If they don’t show it, they don’t love. Because of God’s love for us, He sent His Son to die for us. Our actions don’t have to be that intense. We can show others we love them by our actions every day. When love God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength, He will help us to truly love others in our actions.
Mark 12:30 “And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.” (NLT)
1. List the people you see just about every day.
2. Write down ways you show them love.
3. Seek God’s word about how He shows love to us.
4. Share God’s love with them and take action to show His love.
Dear Lord, we want to show others and You that we love with our actions. Help us to know You better and to love You with all our heart, soul, mind and strength. Show us what actions we need to take to better love others. Let us not just say with our words we love, but show it in our actions. Help us today to be more aware of the needs of others and act in love toward them. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
When we are following the steps of Jesus, we will want to act in love.
We don’t feel loved by others unless they show us. Others don’t feel loved by us unless we show them.
What is one thing you can do to show someone you truly love them? Do it today!
We should take action and don’t just say we love others. We need to really show we love them.
If we say we love but don’t show it, we aren’t really loving others.
1 John 3:18 “Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions.” (NLT)
We should seek ways daily to show others we truly love them and take action.
