Serving handsThroughout the Bible, Christians are commanded to love one another. At the same time, Scripture teaches that love is not just a word to be thrown around, but should be seen in our actions.

We serve not because it is a commanded task to be checked off, or because it "buys" us favor with God. We serve because we love. God showed his love for us by sending Jesus to die for us, and we are called to show love through service.

There are countless ways we can serve one another. At times, it is simply writing a letter when we know someone needs encouragement. Other times, we may take a dinner or a bag of groceries to a friend or neighbor in need.

"This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers." (1 John 3:16)
