RE Verse reading–Genesis 1:1, Psalm 100, John 3:16, 2 Corinthians 8:8-9, Philippians 2:5-8, James 1:17-18 (day three) “Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father” (James 1:17) Remember Gary Chapman’s book THE FIVE LOVE LANGUAGES? It was a turning point for many. 1) Words of affirmation, 2) Touch, 3) Quality Time, 4) Acts of service, 5) Gifts. . . Chapman proposed that we all have a preferred language for expressing and receiving love. What is God’s language of love? Perhaps all, but certainly Acts of service. “God demonstrates His love for us in that while we were sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8) He shows us His love by serving us, providing for us. Picture Jesus on His knees washing the disciples feet! If deeds are God’s language for expressing love to us, doesn’t it follow that He will receive love from us in similar fashion? “If you love me, keep my commandments” said Jesus. (John 14:10) Faith without works is dead. Love without works is too.
