Acts of Love

Acts of Love

Jesus said in John 15:12-13, “This is My commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.”

In a world full of selfishness, loving acts of kindness pierce the darkness, and open opportunities for people to meet Jesus.

During the course of fulfilling YWAM Austin’s 5 overall mission objectives, there will be a steady stream of loving acts flowing from the staff, students, and volunteers. Where ever possible YWAM Austin will open these opportunities up to the rest of the Body of Christ to participate. As we, the Body of Christ, lovingly work together at reaching our world, Jesus Christ is lifted high, which carries the promise that He will then draw all people to Himself (John 12:32). One of YWAM’s foundational values is serving and honoring people with acts of love. YWAM endeavors to live out this loving, servant lifestyle in our YWAM base communities, and then let it flow out to the Body of Christ and the rest of the world.

So, through our times of worship and prayer we trust God will reveal His creative ways He wants us to go into the world and reach out with acts of love. Everybody in the Body of Christ can be involved to some degree in practical demonstrations of God’s love.

Once again, lets look to the Bible to see what God’s kind of love is.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8, 13, “Love is patient, love is kind, and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails…” (vs. 13), “But now abide faith, hope, and love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.”

If one’s heart has truly chosen to make Jesus Lord of their life, then God will see to it that His love flows out of them like rivers of living water to a world desperately in need of God’s loving intervention.

YWAM Austin can help you get plugged into plenty of mission fields to express your flow of God’s love.
