Love in Action
Dear CCF Family,
What are you DOING this week that demonstrates that you are a follower of Jesus? No, not to get him to love you, but because you know you are in a secure relationship with Jesus.
Faith without accompanying ACTION is dead, James says.
What we DO in relating to the poor and vulnerable ("least of these") around us determines our relationship with Jesus, says Jesus.
Loving other people is not just a matter of words. Whether it is true that we love or not is determined by our actions, says John.
Being witness to our good deeds is another way other people looking on give glory to God, Peter adds.
We are quick to judge others by their actions, actually by our interpretation of their actions. But we want others to evaluate us based on our intentions. "But I didn't mean to...." "I meant to give you a call."
We continue to press into this truth of the word of God that our decisions, our actions please God or bring him sadness.
Lord God, may we as individuals, as households, and as a church body be responsive in hearing your heart and responding by DOING. This is "Living the IMPACT."
