Youâ€™ve probably heard the saying that â€œyou may be the only Jesus someone ever sees.â€ There may be a desperate person who is in need of something as small as a smile, or a little money, and you might be the best or the only example of Jesusâ€™ love to them! With this in mind, we should look for ways to live with true compassion, and a caring attitude toward others. Thatâ€™s how you can plant seeds of Godâ€™s love in someone. You may not be around to see the seeds grow into a large and beautiful plant, but you could make a life-changing impact.
When others look at your life, do they know that God loves you? Can they see the change in you? Do they know you are a follower of His? Remember, the evidence is in your words and actions. The most important thing you could ever know and show, is that God loves you. His love changes us. His love empowers us. His love takes us to new levels. His love gives us eternal life.
Today, open your heart fully and receive His love. Then turn around and love Him in return by following His commands. Make the decision today to let His love show all over you!
â€œWe know, dear brothers and sisters, that God loves you and has chosen you to be his own peopleâ€(1 Thessalonians 1:4, NLT)
