One of my favorite preachers said, “Love is what love does.” That is, love is more than lip service or a phrase of endearment. Love is an action word. If you really love someone, then it should be evident in your behaviors around and toward them.
If love is what love does, then God is the greatest lover of all. In John 3:16, Jesus reveals the extent of God’s love. Like Hallmark, God cared enough to send us the very best! He gave the greatest gift to the greatest audience. He gave Himself so everyone could attain eternal life.
The wonderful thing about this gift is that it keeps on giving. Generations to come can enjoy God’s love, for “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved” (Romans 10:13, New Living Translation). Thank God for expressing His love through His Son, Jesus Christ, the greatest gift of all!
