Pastor’s Pen for Sunday, July 14, 2019

“But God demonstrated His own love toward us,
in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
Romans 5:8

Love is Demonstrated By Actions

Love is not something to just talk about,
It’s really in how its walked out,
It’s not how loud we can shout,
Or some kind of deed in which we tout…
But love is demonstrated by actions!

And love doesn’t say ‘Come back when you’re clean’
It doesn’t demand that it has to be seen,
Love does not act rudely or mean,
Love is there when we need a place to lean…
Yes love is demonstrated by actions!

For what if God had merely said,
“I love you, even though you’re dead?”
Or what if God kept His love just in His head?
What if for our sins no blood He shed?
Oh no, love is demonstrated by actions!

What if God demanded us to change?
Insisting that we our lives rearrange,
To get our act together and not further estrange,
That’s not love, that would just be strange!
For God’s love is demonstrated by actions!

So now let yourself hear the good news,
No longer are we bound to crying the blues,
Jesus died so condemnation would lose,
The cross tells us that God in Christ, He did chose… 
To demonstrate His love by actions!

Receive His love, then share it with others,
For love is demonstrated by actions!
