The Proof of Your Love

I suppose this isn’t really a long post, but I just wanted to take a few minutes for this song. And what a great song it is! Anymore, my prayers usually tend to head in this direction. I want people to look at my life and see one thing: Jesus. I want them to see Him in my words, my attitude, and my choices. And I want to be ready always to give an answer of the hope lies within me.

This song goes along with 1 Corinthians 13, which is a whole chapter repeatedly saying, “If I don’t have love, what am I?” The words challenge me to live a life avoiding all appearances of evil, and instead live a life that Jesus would be proud of me for living.

“If I sing but don’t have love
I waste my breath with every song
I bring an empty voice, a hollow noise
If I speak with a silver tongue
Convince a crowd but don’t have love
I leave a bitter taste with every word I say

So let my life be the proof,
The proof of Your love
Let my love look like You and what You’re made of
How You lived, how You died
Love is sacrifice
So let my life be the proof,
The proof of Your love

If I giveĀ 
To a needy soul but don’t have love then who is poor?
It seems all the poverty is found in me

So let my life be the proof,
The proof of Your love
Let my love look like You and what You’re made of
How You lived, how You died
Love is sacrifice
Oh, let my life be the proof,
The proof of Your love

When it’s all said and done
When we sing our final song
Only love remains
Only love remains

Let my life be the proof,
The proof of Your love
Let my love look like You and what You’re made of
How You lived, how You died
Love is sacrifice
So let my life be the proof,
The proof of Your love.”

“For me to live is Christ, but to die is to gain.”

Jesus, let this always be my prayer.
