Actions speak louder than words, so don’t just say I love you show them that you do love them. Jacob loved Rachel so much he worked a total of 14 years in order to marry her. It was initially supposed to be seven years. Genesis 29:15,18 KJV And Laban said unto Jacob, Because thou art my brother, shouldest thou therefore serve me for nought? tell me, what shall thy wages be? And Jacob loved Rachel; and said, I will serve thee seven years for Rachel thy younger daughter. But her father Laban didn’t keep his word and manipulated the situation and Jacob ends up with her sister Leah, because it was custom in those days that the eldest be married off before the younger sister. Now did I say Jacob loved Rachel? And to prove it, he worked another seven years. Genesis 29:30 KJV And he went in also unto Rachel, and he loved also Rachel more than Leah, and served with him yet another seven years. WOW!!
If you think 14 years was something great, then let’s meditate on this one, the greatest act of love is what God did for all of us …
John 3:16 -17 KJV For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
We say we love God. However, are you willing to do whatever it takes to show God that you love him? Do you love him enough to give him more of your time? Do you love him enough to spend more time in the word? Do you love him enough to adjust your schedule to get up earlier to spend time with him before the chaotic day gets into full swing? Do you love him enough to live by faith? Do you love him enough be obedient, not for a couple of months or a few years, but as long as you have breath? Let your actions show God how much you love him.
