Love is the name of God, it is who God is, it is also what He does. It is for love that he made us and the same reason he redeemed us.
Love is what our lives should therefore be about. Not the big miracles, not fixing others, not the cards and sweet nothings, not even for the big revivals. No real change can take place without love. And love is not love just because you say it. It all lies in your actions.
Love is an action word!
Christ didn't wait for us to love him before he died for us. He didn't keep a tab of all the things we do wrong and demand we set up a solution or accept we are wrong before he can love us.
Rather he loved us and walked with us right where we were. In our sin and shame, He identified with us.
Amazing love oh what sacrifice the son of God was given for me that I might live.
So before charging into our day's activity today, let's take a moment to reflect on the love that has brought us all the way. Show God you love him today, not just by saying it but by doing! You have not seen God, but you can see your spouse, your child, that friend, the colleague, that subordinate and the domestic help too, show them love in how you talk to them, in the time you spend with them, in how you react to their errors, show love in correction- it's not about keeping track of wrong doing.
By this shall all men know you are my disciples if you love one another.
