The Look of Love (DAY 1 of “GOD ACTION” -a 4 day series)

Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.
1 John 3:18 NIV

http://bible.com/111/1jn.3.18.NIV

“One Love” performed using sign language: 

God’s Word: 

Little children (believers, dear ones), let us not love [merely in theory] with word or with tongue [giving lip service to compassion], but in action and in truth [in practice and in sincerity, because practical acts of love are more than words]. 1 JOHN 3:18 AMP

http://bible.com/1588/1jn.3.18.AMP

As I focus on this one verse and how it fits with the consistency with which Jesus Christ lived His life I

Considering today what signs I convey with my body language alone. Are my actions like Jesus?

Focusing on pleasing God not others.

Active in His Word and more importantly letting His Word be active in me.

Remembering how BIG God’s love is, His grace, mercy and love for me, so that I can love others, regardless of:

  •  Who they are. 
  • What they are like.
  • Where they are.
  • When they need it (which is really all the time)
  • How they live & how they respond.

Resource: Let Me Be Human by Debbie Hudson (about being human and accepting that He accepts us and simply loves us because that is who He is).

This concludes day one of this series and, although it is a series, each day can be read on it’s own, by itself without necessarily including the other days.

Love, Beetle
