Saying I love you, means so much more than most people out there can imagine! It takes more than just saying I love you. It takes action!! John 15:12-13
So many times we use words to express our feeling, but this word love is probably the most abused even in the Christians life.
Love cannot be used just to appease people, or situations. It is a word that means action, It means show me something! I know there are a couple of different terms used for this word, Agape, Philia, and Eros. Though different types of love expressed in different ways, they all take action. They all mean doing more than just saying a word to get your way, or to appease a situation.
The next time you say I love you to anyone, what steps are you willing to take to show that love? Are you willing to walk an extra mile in someones shoes? Are you willing to stop and take from our busy schedules and make that phone call we had been meaning to make for months? The next time you say I love you, stop and truly think about what you are saying, and what you truly mean when you say it!
When God said, "I love you," He gave us something that meant more than anything to Him, His Son!
"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16
"Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down ones life for his friends." John 15:13
