As Christians, we are called to show others love. As John 13:35 says, others will know we are Jesus’ disciples, if you love one another [if you keep on showing love among yourselves].
So many people see love as “just a feeling,” but it’s so much more than that. True love shows itself through our actions.
These actions don’t have to be impossible and overwhelming. One of the best ways to show the love of Jesus is through simple, everyday actions…
- Like giving a small gift to someone or striking up a conversation with a downcast individual who needs a friend.
- Or giving a bag of groceries to the single mom who lives down the street and is struggling to put food on the table.
- Showing love can even be as simple as smiling and saying hello to a person you pass on the street, in the hall, or at the store
There are many ways to demonstrate the love of Christ. When you show His love to someone else, it can soften that person’s heart, and before you know it, they’ll be finding ways to reach out and show love to others, too!
So celebrate God’s love and let Him lead you. Is He putting someone on your heart right now?
I want my love for Jesus to be reflected in the way I show love for others—even those who may be difficult to love. If I can soften one hard heart with the love of God, maybe that person will soften another's heart with love, then that one will reach out to others, and God’s love will go on and on... And soon we'll have a love revolution!
Prayer Starter: God, I want my love for You to be reflected in the way I show love for others. Show me ways to demonstrate love to anyone and everyone that You bring across my path.
