Last week, I introduced the Love Works principle. True love is an action; thus, showing Christ’s love involves physical WORK.
I know, work is a four-letter word. And, we lazy humans would rather do as little work as possible.
Jesus calls us to be different. In fact, he showed us how to love people in a way that worked – as in, it was effective.
When people were hungry – Jesus fed them.
When people were sick – Jesus healed them.
When people had a problem – Jesus solved it.
When people were hurting – Jesus helped them.
When people were lost – Jesus found them.
People need love – Jesus loves them.
Everyone loves their friends and family. Can you think of something one of them has done to prove their love? (Prove it? You mean I shouldn’t believe them if they don’t prove it? No, but if you love them, it should show forth in your actions – i.e. proof).
Do you love your neighbor? What can you do to show them that? That’s what it looks like when Love Works is put into action.
