Love in Action

guys huddling and praying

There is no doubt that we need social reform. If success is ever to be realized, our generations must work together and listen to each other, which is one of the first requirements of cooperation. At this point, the Gospel of Jesus Christ is relevant as the great reconciler. The Apostle John, in his first epistle, declared, “To you, young men, I have written,” and, “To you, fathers, I have written.” This is to the young activists and to the old guard, “It is by this that we know what love is: that Christ laid down His life for us. And we in our turn are bound to lay down our lives for our brothers. But if a man has enough to live on, and yet when he sees his brother in need shuts up his heart against him, how can it be said that the divine love dwells in him? My children, love must not be a matter of words or talk; it must be genuine, and show itself in action. This is how we may know that we belong to the realm of truth” (1 John 3:16-19, NEB).

Prayer for the day

Father, when someone disagrees with my opinions, may my love not be determined by rhetoric, but by the all–encompassing love of Your Son, Jesus Christ.

    Love can only be demonstrated in giving, give your time,give your money,give your strength, give material things.if your heart is there your hand will be there. God has shown us’ for God loves the world that he gave his only begotten son…’ even God gave his very best. Until you start giving, you’ve not started loving.When you do not love, you have no business being a christian. Jesus is lord

    God is love. Whoever lives in love, lives in God, and God in Him. We love because He first loved us.

  7. Myrna says:

    But because of God’s great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions–it is by grace we have been saved.

    Love is a Command; not a request or a favour we do to other to get something in return! We love by the Holy Spirit and grace of the Lord Jesus Christ!!!
    “This is my Command: love each other.” [ JOHN 15: 17 (NIV) ].
    Thank You Jesus Christ!!!

    “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life.” Thankyou.
