Love Acts! (John 3:16-21)

When love sees a need, love always acts. Love may not act through the people we expect or in the ways we anticipate, but love cannot sit by while another is in need. Jesus tells the parable of the Good Samaritan to challenge us all to love our neighbour and take action to help us. This is no more than God himself has already done in loving this world so much that he sent Jesus to show his love in action.

16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. 19 And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil. 20 For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed. 21 But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.” (ESV)
