Expressing Our Love

 

The three words “I love you” are very powerful.  Love is expressed not only in words but also in action.  In fact, it has been said, “Talk is cheap.”  To tell someone that you love him is certainly not cheap, but love also needs to be expressed by what we do and how we act.  As God’s people, we convey love through our giving and serving.

             In God’s Word, He tells us how much He loves each of us and then proves it by giving His Son to die for us.  “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).  Jesus gave His life for us and He keeps on giving.  We can demonstrate our love for Him through our giving.  When we give faithfully of our time, talents, and treasures, we show our love for Jesus. 

            God takes love seriously.  He loves us, and He expects us to love one another.  Jesus said, “Love one another as I have loved you” (John 13:34).  We express our love to Jesus when we serve those around us.  Serving communicates love.  “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many” (Mark 10:45). 

            The love that Jesus places in our hearts can be our fuel to make a difference not only in our lives, but in the lives of those around us.  It is important to express our love as we thank God for His abundant grace, mercy, and blessing, but our words must be supported through the greater expression of our love as seen through our giving and serving as God gives us grace to do.
