Love is a Verb

My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue;
but in DEED and in TRUTH.
1 John 3:18

Deed - an action that is performed intentionally or consciously

Love is truly an action word. It is nice to hear, but means so much more when it is manifested in an undeniable way.

Truth - the opposite of a lie.

True love cannot lie. The ability to truly love anyone comes through a relationship with Jesus, who is truth. We think we love people, but the more we see God's love for us, we see that our love fails in comparison. Only through Jesus, can we love like Him.

God showed, demonstrated, acted out His love for you by sending His only begotten son, Jesus, as a sacrifice for your sins. There is nothing more lovely.

Because of that love, that first love, He allows us love beyond words and feelings, but in raw action that goes beyond receiving that love in return. That is Awesome. That is God. That is Love.
