God has designed the Christian life to be one filled with adventurous and redemptive action, action that is fuelled by the love and work of Jesus in our own lives.
God has planned for us works empowered by the furious longing of a God so in love with the world that he would leave his glory, inhabit the body of a man and destroy the power of sin and death with his own crucifixion for a people who could never fully return the favour.
We’re meant to reflect the love we’ve been shown in the way we offer grace and love to those around us. God’s chosen to use us, his children, to be the sole carriers of the message of redemption for all. You. Me. God chooses to use us to share and exemplify the hope for all of humanity to know the love of their Creator.
You see, love doesn’t really mean all that much simply as an idea in comparison to its seemingly limitless power as an action. Jesus proved that love isn’t just an idea. Love does.

… faith apart from works is dead. -James 2:6
