Dancing and Love

A former co-worker of mine, Sue, posted this video to her Facebook page.

It moved my heart and I had to share.

Dance, Be Happy

I was reminded that God is love and Jesus said this in John 13:

34 new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. 35 By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

The universal language of love breaks all boundaries of culture. Just like this guy dancing with people in so many other countries and cultures. You can show love in ways that everyone will see, hear, and understand.

Jesus wants us to love one another. By doing that, people will know that we are His disciples. 

He did not say, "Judge others." 
He did not say, "Tell them all of the things they are doing wrong." 
He did not say, "Preach hell, fire, and brimstone to them." 

What is love?
God is love. 1 John 4: 7 & 8
Treat people the way you want to be treated. Luke 6: 31
Love is patient, love is kind.... 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8
Love does no harm to it's neighbor. Romans 13: 10
Love covers a multitude of sin. 1 Peter 4:8
There is no fear in love. 1 John 4:18 & 19

(These are just a few Scriptures. You are welcome to search yourself.)

I believe that people do need to know the consequences of their life without Christ, but the best way to tell them is by telling and showing them they are loved first. Actions speak louder than words.

Who can you show love to today?
