It’s What You Do . . .

It’s what is done that proves our love, so much more than what we say,
for words said without actions, are spoken every day.

It’s what we do with what we speak; the two go hand in hand,
GOD so loved HE gave HIS SON, a sacrificed for man.

Jesus was obedient to HIS FATHER, that HE gave,
HE gave HIS life and took our pain, so that we could be saved.

Just think that if HE did not do, to hang upon that cross,
we would have lost our very souls, that would have been the cost.

We should praise the FATHER for HIS love, that HE would choose to prove,
it’s not the words we say, but what we choose to do.

Obedience is what JESUS did, it was the only way,
to save us from our sins, but it took HIM to obey.

They beat HIM and they tore HIS flesh, they nailed HIM to that cross,
it’s what HE did that saves us, but HIS obedience had a cost.

If we say we love our brother who is hungry or in need,
and we do not help him, is that how loves supposed to be?

GOD commands us to love HIM first and to love our fellow man;
words must come with actions for the two go hand in hand.

By doing we are loving and obeying our GOD’S will,
not doing is not loving, if the words are not fulfilled.

Better yet, don’t speak at all, allow what love would do,
love our GOD with all your heart and to HIS love be true.

HE gave us an example to follow humbly,
as HE became a servant and chose to wash man’s feet.

It’s what we do in love that proves, that our Religions true,
so love our GOD with all your heart, love others, as you would love you.
