“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son.’’ John 3:16 KJV
Child of God, there is no way you can demonstrate love without giving something. When God was to show us how much he loved us, he gave His only Son to die for our sins. Thank God for this great love, otherwise where would you be today? In the same way, God wants you to spread His love to the world. If you truly love Jesus, then show it. Show it in your service to Him. Show it in evangelism. Show it as you lead your group. Show it in your relationship with your fellow Cell centre members.
Many times, we pay lip serve to loving God. We claim to love God, but we do not show His love to those around us. You cannot say you love God, if you do not show His love to your world.
Think of it! When last did you go through your wardrobe to look for very good clothes to bless someone with? When last did you enter a boutique to get a gift for someone who cannot afford it? During festive periods, do you ever think of how to ensure that another family has a meal on their table? Are you just consumed with yourself, me, mine and I?
Your love for God is also evident in your worship. When we talk about worship, I am not talking about singing slowly. The quality of your worship in songs, in offerings, in tithes, all goes to show how much you love God. You cannot claim to love God and keep your money away from Him. No. Your love for God must be total.
I encourage you to take a moment and think about the question today: How much do you love God? Are you demonstrating this love? How much are you willing to sacrifice just to show you love Him? If there are areas that indict you, make amends today and love Him totally and completely. Be that individual that God can depend on. As you do that, He will certainly come through for you.
