“This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. 17 If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? 18 Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.”
1 John 3:16-18 NIV
On this Memorial Day, remember this…love is action. Do whatever you can for whoever you can, whenever you can, wherever you are…show the love of Christ that is in you to others in your life. Honor those who have served to ensure freedom in this country and serve one another out of love. Amen.
“I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. 12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”
John 15:11-13 NIV
