“Our Love Must Be Real”

Love Must Be REal

by Dona Hake

God is looking for us to put feet to His love, and walk out His ways.  He is desiring that we put action to that which we know we should do.  There is a scripture that says, “In Him I live and move and have my being.” Acts 17:28    He so desires that we act according to His Word and walk away from our ways that do not exhibit His love and character.  There are those that need His love and we need to avail ourselves to Him that He can flow through us.

We must remember that there will be times that He may call upon us to help people and it may just make us have to go one more mile than what we had intended.  Many times His love will stretch us and that is a very good thing.  It is in those times that His love will be shown and we too will grow as we give of ourselves.   I think it is a good thing for all of us to be pulled away from our comfort zone and put in a place we have to rely on Him to help us to do things we never thought were possible!


Oh how  liberating it is to know that when we are real with God, He will show us great things that He desires to do through us.  We will then be positioned to act from our hearts and exhibit His love in a real way.


1 John 3:18-19   (ERV)
“My children, our love should not be only words and talk.

No, our love must be real.

We must show our love by the things we do.

That’s how we know we belong to the way of truth.”
