Many words and actions have been used down through human history to express love, whether it was genuine or merely pretend. There is one thing that is certain, “God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8). “Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends” (John 15:13).
How can we show our love in return? My mind goes to Mary in John 12; “Mary therefore took a pound of expensive ointment made from pure nard, and anointed the feet of Jesus and wiped his feet with her hair. The house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume” (12:3). No words were spoken, but her actions spoke what words could not say.
God spoke to us of His love through the giving of His Son; an action unparalleled by any human being. Mary express her love for Jesus through an act that was severely criticized by others, but Jesus defends her; “Leave her alone, so that she may keep it for the day of my burial.” (12:7).
Do you show your love for Jesus, just by your actions? If you add words, make sure they match what you do for Jesus.
