Showing Your Love

My question in our adult Sunday School class was: "Knowing how much God loves you, how do you show your love for Him?"

The  silence stretched too long so I said, “You don’t have to answer the question now. As you ponder it at your own time, try to answer this follow-up question. On a scale of one to 10, how would you rate the way you show your love?”

Try and try and try is all we can do.

We can never reach a perfect 10 in showing our love for our Savior. He gave up His life to show His love for us, but what have we given up to show our love for Him?

We are a work in progress, just as our answers to those questions are. On good days, we take a step forward. On bad days, we go three steps backward. We just have to keep trying--and praying that grace continues to show up despite our poor showing.

“Come close to God, and God will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; purify your hearts, for your loyalty is divided between God and the world.” James 4:8 (NLT)

Wow, I'd be at a loss too trying to answer that. Yet, He is patient, loving us in spite of our being absent most of the time (because we're so busy doing things on our own).

I still haven't answered those myself. Still figuring out HOW. But trying hard . . .
