Love In Action

Love In Action

BY PASTOR DENNIS MORALES

My son Noah has a very unique ability to make friends easily, a character trait of my wife Michelle for sure. When Noah enters his classroom I can't help but notice all his friends coming to greet him enthusiastically. As his dad, I get a glimpse into his heart every day. It's an amazing joy to see him grow. We were at a park one day and Noah overheard someone crying. He ran over and found a little girl had fallen off her tricycle, so he helped her up, put his arm around her and told her simply "it's ok, it's ok." This little girl was his new buddy for the rest of their time at the park. I believe friendship is the launching pad for love. Proverbs says that a "friend loves at all times" (Proverbs 17:17). Friendship has such an effect on other important relationships in life. Research points out that friendly people live longer than the general population. Jesus spoke highly of both love and friendship. Jesus said loving one another is a mark of knowing Him. "Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another" (John 13:35). As you read the famous 1 Corinthians 13 love chapter, we see words in our language that qualify as descriptors or adjectives. In the original Greek language, these words are action words. John 15:13 says "greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends." God, with love in action, sent His Son. His Son actively loved by sacrificing His life for all mankind (John 3:16), so that we can have the hope of heaven.
