Show Your Love
Show your love by your actions.
A Mother's Day card
"If you love me, you will obey what I command" (John 14:15). "If anyone says, 'I love God,' yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen" (1 John 4:20).
I am sure that all of you know that it is Mother's Day. Did you give your mother a card or a present for Mother's Day? This Mother's Day card says, "Mom, I love you!" Do you think your mother likes to hear you tell her that you love her? Of course she does! But do you know what your mother would like even more? She would like for you to show her that you love her. How do you think you might do that? Well, you might help around the house, you could clean your room, you could empty the trash, you could show her you love her by obeying her when she tells you to do something. It is easy to tell your mom that you love her, but if you really love her, your actions will show it!
Do you think that Jesus likes to hear us tell Him that we love Him? I know He does. But He likes it even better when our actions show Him that we love Him. How do we do that? The Bible says, "If you love me, you will obey what I command." One of the best ways to show our love for Jesus is to love one another. The Bible says, "Anyone who does not love his brother, cannot love God." Yes, Jesus likes to hear us say, "I love you," but He would rather see us say, "I love you."
Dear Lord, we have come to your house today to say, "I love you." Help us to go out of here today and show you that we love you by our actions. Amen.
