Active Love, Actual Love

What does love look like?
Flowers?
Candy?
Dinner and a movie?

How about sacrificing yourself.
Your life.
For another.

God’s love is visible.
It is demonstrated by what he gave.
What he gave up.
For us.
His love is sacrificial.

What does our love for him look like?
Is it visible at all?

God has prepared a place in heaven for us.
He is preparing us for that place.
His love is blessing us.
With actions, not just words.

Lord, may my actions today demonstrate my love for you.
My gratitude for your sacrifice for me.
Today I will serve you instead of myself.
Generously, heroically, zealously — serve you.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
