God loves us through His presence and answers to our prayers. Requests for His all-inclusive love occur many times day and night.

He responds with guidance, improved relationships, forgiveness, supply and countless other requests.

Then, how do we love God? God is not visible to the eye, so we can express our love for Him by our love to others.

Specific examples include expressions of loving concern for someone in need, thus expressing our love for God. We can write or speak in gratitude to others for their honest, good service they have brought to our world. We can demonstrate patience with the elderly. We can visit, call or write the lonely. We can compliment someone for good service to others. We can contribute in various ways to organizations that provide for the needy. The opportunities are endless.

There are so many ways in which we can give visible service to God’s creation. That’s loving God.
