Don’t just tell Him – show Him

Love is only truly expressed when it goes beyond words and is put into action. We can say “I love you,” but showing our love in real ways is when love comes alive. This is the kind of love we are demanded to demonstrate.

Jesus pointed out this fact in the following exchange with Peter:
The third time he said to him, "Simon son of John, do you love me?" Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, "Do you love me?" He said, "Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you." Jesus said, "Feed my sheep.” – John 21:17
So, do we love Jesus? Is our love going beyond words? Are we feeding his sheep? Are we sharing the good news of Christ with others? While making a profession of love is important and a good start, it is not the completion. Love is lived out as we serve others, show kindness to others, help others, and most importantly feed Christ’s sheep with the bread of life.
