We love saying “love.” Don’t we?

I have a bad tendency of saying the word “love” far too much. I love fall, tacos, egg-rolls, my family and my wife. Don’t you see how I am using the same word for a wide spectrum of situations? In no way, shape or form is the love I have for my wife the same as the love I have for tacos, but that didn’t stop me from saying it.

Saying “love” and showing love are completely different. “Love” is vapid (empty) if it’s not backed up by action. The same is true in both relationships with people and God. We must do more than just say we care about people, we must show it. We must do more than say we love God, we must show it.

Why did we create this 1 John devotional for students?

1 John is all about love in action. Your actions reveal your affections. God has called you to love those around you and love Him. This 1 John devotional is designed to help students unlock the life-changing potential of authentic love — both for God and others.
