True Love Breeds Action
1 John 3:18 (KJB) My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.
Sincere love will certainly demonstrate itself in action. Words are flowery but cheap and easily discounted.
Tell me you love me and perhaps it is true, but certainly words can be cheap!.
Show me you love me and your action cements this truth in deeds.
Those who have the love of God at work in their softened heart are always found to be loving inside their new nature from God. Love is a perpetual spiritual compliment, or byproduct of having a personal relationship with God, for God is love.
God did not just voice His plan about sending His Only Son to the cross at Calvary. He put His will into action through the obedience of Jesus Christ, who magnificently demonstrated His eternal love for you and me.
God does not just tell us He loves us. He demonstrated it through His Word and the unconditional love into action through His Son’s finished work of Calvary. We need to mirror Christ-likeness in our love towards others by fruitful actions each day.
