It’s The Actions Not The Words

I love you.

We must have said those three little words to each other a thousand times and I won’t speak for you but those words when spoken by you to me are so powerful they awaken my deepest emotions.

I’ve often wondered how is it that the sound of three little words can bring me so much happiness? Then it hit me, it’s when I hear you say them I know you mean it.

When I look back at past relationships I realize that when others said I love you they really didn’t mean it? When they said those words, it was the sound of their voice, nothing more nothing less. It was just a sound, a vibration that broadcast itself as a mechanical wave of pressure and displacement through air. Now that’s not romantic and it’s certainly not something I should have given my heart away to.

But with you I love you is not just the utterance of words it’s your actions that bring those words to life. Like when we trade smiles across a room. When you instinctively grab for my hand in a crowd. That look in your eye when you wake up beside me each morning; Small unconscious actions that likely go unnoticed to everyone else but me. Actions that say I love you without any words, no sound passing through the air. I hope my actions say the same to you because there is no doubt in my heart that I love you

Fellow Christians

Ponder this fellow Christians can we really say we are followers of Christ when:

We embrace the immorality of our so called leaders.

Promote racial intolerance.

Turn our backs to the atrocities happening to others simply because they were born in another part of the world.

Let the poor starve.

Let the sick suffer.

Teach our children hate and division instead of love and unity.

All in the name of our own so called “comfort” 

The answer should be crystal clear.

The answer is no we cannot.

To follow Christ is not simply to recite the scriptures but to open your heart and actively follow the teachings of the Lord, even if it causes us a little discomfort now and then.
