But in deed and in truth

My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth.

1 John 3:18 NKJV

Love in God’s kingdom is an action word.  If we claim to love one another and if we claim to love those who are lost then action should follow.  To simply to claim to love someone without action to back it up is worthless.  Jesus demonstrated His love for us by simply dying upon the cross for us.  Jesus demonstrated His love for us through action.  Faith without deeds is dead.  So if we are to truly be followers of Christ then we must be people of action.  Everything Jesus did was driven by His love for humanity. He was moved with compassion and as we grow in our relationship with Jesus we become more and more like Him.  As we abide in Him the fruit of the Holy Spirit is grown and developed in our lives.
