To love is to go beyond all our natural comforts and love those furthest from God and furthest from our own norms and expectations.  This could be said as loving the unlovely.  This love is a love-in-action.  Not just flowery words that tickle ears and leave stomachs hungry but loving actions that create pathways from those words to hit home in hearts.  

Yield

Lord, I will live with Your ‘Royal Law’ to “Love my neighbor as myself”.

Revelation

Faith without works is dead and useless.  Works are another word for what we like to call ‘Ministry’.  This is a natural outflow of a Mended follower of Christ who is being Morphed by the Holy Spirit.  These works do not save us but they flow out of the saved person.  This ‘Ministry’ is outward evidence of our inward faith and they are often the means by which the Lord Jesus brings His Gospel to this world.  You and your ministry/works are vital to the Kingdom of Jesus today.
