Today I was asked, "How can your church most impact your community for Jesus Christ?" After thinking a minute I answered with two words, "Love LOUD!" I believe that Bible clearly teaches us that if we will show the love of Christ we will win a hearing to share the love of Christ.
John MacArthur said, "You don't define love, you describe it by action." I believe that's true. People respond when they see love in action.
Scripture puts it like this: "Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven" (Matt 5:16).
"Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth" (1 Jn 3:18) for "As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead" (James 2:26).
Let us Love LOUD!
