Show Me the Love

“Show Me the Love!”

Does it sound familiar?

If you have ever seen the movie, "Jerry MaGuire", I am sure that you have heard the famous quote from it.

"Show Me the Money!"

That is what the main character, portrayed by Tom Cruise, said to his friend, played by Cuba Gooding, Jr. in the 1996 movie.

However, I say..."Show Me the Love!"

By that, I mean...Show me the love of Jesus Christ! I am sure that I am not alone in my thoughts and feelings.

Have you ever needed people to show you the love of Jesus Christ?

Not just in words, but in deeds and in truth...(1 John 3:18)

How do you do that?

Well, for one, you can give a person a ride to church. Another way....Invite a person over to your house for a meal. Reach out to a brother or sister who is in need. Feed the hungry. Clothe the naked. Give to the poor. Shelter the homeless. Visit the sick, the jailed, and the imprisoned. Share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. (Matt 25:35-40)

There are many different ways to show a person the love of Jesus Christ. Find out what the person may need physically, emotionally, or spiritually. Then, meet the person at that particular place.

That is what Jesus Christ did for people when He walked on the earth. He met people where they were at the time.

We are to be just like Him here on earth. We are to be His eyes, His ears, His hands, and His feet. Whatever a person is in need of at the time, that is what we are to do for them and for Him.

So, the next time that a person is in need...What will you say? What will you do? Will you show the person the love of Jesus Christ?
