Thought of the Day January 5, 2018 Love in word and deed

By 10:15 AM

“The way we came to know love was that he laid down his life for us; so we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers….Children, let us love not in word or speech, but in deed and truth.” (1 John 3:16,18) Jesus in his humanity is the model of love for us to imitate and follow. How did he show us the greatest of all love? He, though sinless, took upon himself our sins and gave his life as a sacrificial gift to the Father. He didn't talk about love, rather he exhibited the truth and essence of love in action. Anyone can talk about love, but the reality of love is expressed in sacrificial action. True love seeks the good of the other for the sake of the other. How authentic is our love of God and others?
