We’ve heard it before; Love is an action, not a verb. Verse 6 clearly supports that notion, And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love. Whether we look at the Old or New Testament, we are commanded to love. In the Old, in the second part of Leviticus 19:18 it says …but love your neighbor as yourself. And in the New, Christ commands us in John 15:12, My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Love is put into practice when we are obedient to His commands. We can do this in a variety of ways; accepting people, listening, helping, giving, serving, refusing to judge, and a variety of other positive ways. In the end, it comes down to just doing and not just talking!
