The Proof of Your Love

My new favorite song if The Proof of Your Love, by For King and Country. The lyrics and an amazing live recording are below. Please take time to read through the words and watch the video. 

 The song is about love.

The love relationship between Jesus and us is what life is about. Following in importance, is the love relationship between us and others--family, friends, enemies, strangers, poor, rich, elderly, children, etc.

I think I get caught up in yearning to prove to God my love for Him by doing, praying, reading...and I often lack.


What if instead of trying to prove to God that we love Him, we instead let our lives be the proof to others that God loves them? That could be radical.

God loves you. Do you know that? God LOVES you!

The Proof of Your Love- For King and Country

If I sing but don't have love
I waste my breathe 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 give to a needy soul
But don't have love then who is poor
It seems all the poverty
Is found in me


Ooh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
When it's all said and done
Ooh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
When we sing our final song

Only love remains
Only love remains
