It really fills ones heart to show love for others. When we work out of a position of love, we develop and maintain a dynamic relationship with God. When we help others while giving God glory, we are spreading God’s love. When we help others, we feel a sense of love and fulfillment inside and this love helps us feel valuable. Joy is cultivated out of love.
No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. (1 John 4:12, NIV)
A few times each year, my children help me make several lasagna meals. We deliver them to local families when we find out someone’s day can be brightened with a meal. Opportune times to deliver meals include loss of loved ones, when mom or family members are sick, or when someone is busy with hospital visits.
What an honor to be able to show God’s love to those around us!
“If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. ‘This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.’” (John 15:10-12, NIV)
Here, some of our children and their friends are feeling joyful as they make Christmas cards for residents who live at a local nursing home.
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” (John 13:34-35, NIV)
Let's make it a point to show other's God's love in every word we speak and every action we take.
