December 20, 2009 – A Special Christmas

Joyful Noise Choir

‘The baby Jesus shows us that love is something you do. You show love by what you do, not just by what you feel.

Over and over again, in the Bible, God commands us to love each other. And you can’t command an emotion.If love were just an emotion, then God couldn’t command it. But love is something you do. It can produce emotion, but love is an action.

The Bible says, “Let us stop just saying we love each other; let us really show it by our actions” (1 John 3:18 NLT). We can talk a good act: “I love people.” But do we really love them? Do you really love them? Our love is revealed in how we act toward them.’

Let us take these wise words to heart, and take action this Christmas. Yes, we’re sending off a small mountain of shoes. We can join the carolers at Kensington Retirement Home Monday at 7. How many Red Cross kettles have you passed this year without dropping you change in? Just take a moment and think of the many opportunities you have to go only a little out of your way and thereby make this a wonderful Christmas season for you and yours and someone you don’t even know. Love is a verb of action.

Merry Christmas everyone!
