…and start SHOWING it.
Words are easy. Words can be cheap. Words often are empty. But not God’s words. When he says, “I love you,” he means it. In fact, he shows it. That is what the cross is all about. In other words, the demonstration of love proves the declaration of love.
And yet this is much easier said than done. If I am honest, there is a lot more declaration to my love than demonstration. If you stopped saying I love you, would those closest to you at least feel loved? Ouch! That is a painful question that reveals why so many marriages are strained and other relationships are shallow.
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
If you find yourself stuck and frustrated in a relationship, Sunday’s message is going to help big-time. In our key passage in 1 John 4, God shows us how love moves from mere declaration (words) to demonstration (actions), and the difference it can make in our lives. I can’t wait to share it with you!
