Beauty in Actions
Jesus Christ came to earth as a manifestation of God’s love to the world. He spent a large part
of his ministry going from place to place, doing good, and thereby alleviating suffering. Jesus’ actions of
compassion included healing the sick, casting out demons, feeding the hungry, raising the dead, and giving hope for
a better life hereafter. He instructed his followers to love one another and to do unto others as they have seen
him do. This would glorify the Father in heaven. (See John 3:16; Matthew 10:5-8; 14:14; 15:37; Luke 9:11-17; John
13:34-35; Matthew 5:14-16; Philippians 1:11; Titus 2:14.)
Actions have impact – it is said that actions
speak louder than words. We tend to remember what people did for us rather than what they said or promised to do.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, an action may be worth ten thousand or more. Loving actions are in harmony
with the will of God who is love – and may indeed be God’s answer to someone’s need. Through our loving actions,
people may see God at work in their lives. Interestingly, the reverse is also true. Jesus said that when we help
and meet the needs of others by relieving their hunger, thirst, lack of clothing, and loneliness, we are serving
Christ himself (See Matthew 25:35-36; cf. Prov. 19:17).
