Love in Action
Love in Action is a call to actively love one another. When asked which is the greatest commandment, Jesus answered to love God and love others. The words are simple and easily understood but putting love into action is more challenging.
DaySpring is here to provide resources, cheer you on and encourage you to love one another. That’s love in action. Join with us as we discover and put into action twelve unique characteristics of love:
- Love Dreams | Eph 3:20-21
- Love Loves | John 13:34-35
- Love Listens | James 1:19
- Love Unites | Eph 4:2-7
- Love Prays | Phi 4:6-7
- Love Sacrifices | Rom 5:8
- Love Speaks | Eph 4:15
- Love Hopes | 1 Cor 13:7
- Love Overcomes | John 16:33
- Love Believes | Mark 5:36
- Love Gathers | 1 Peter 4:8-9
- Love Celebrates | Psalm 145:6-8
Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
Our Love in Action Manifesto
Love is more than a feeling.
Love is an attitude. It chooses to be patient when patience is hard. It celebrates what is good and cheers it on. Love never fights back. It never takes advantage–it reaches out to help, because love is kind. Love is never rude or selfish or angry. It doesn't insist on being right, and it never keeps score.
Love speaks the truth and calls attention to the good. Love is generous. It shows up. It believes the best and always gives hope. Love never, ever fails. Love is the standard. Love is the point.
Love is always the choice worth living.
