1st John 3:18

“My little children, let us love neither in word nor in tongue but in deed and truth. “
-1st John 3: 18

It’s very easy to shower someone with those three words.
“I LOVE YOU.”
Rolls off our tongues, simple as chords.

Utterances based on some indescribable feeling inside.
Sometimes negligently spoken without a forethought of the true meaning.
Sometimes, it is just what you would expect of a bride.

Tainted in its definition.
Conditional in its exhibition.
Demonstrated in remission.

Permit me to say that we’ve only just began to scratch the surface.
And in order for us to fully comprehend;
We must focus on the ultimate standard, that saving grace.

Painfully displayed on that cross.
Eternally pardoned through His loss.
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down His life for us.

Show love, speak love.
Your love should be visible and practical
Not just audible and theoretical.
