If someone says, “I love you,” but they never show it, what effect does that have on you?  You may believe they love you because they said so, but does that conceptual knowledge satisfy your love hunger?  No!  Why?  because the message is not enough!  Actual love must be demonstrated in and through relationship.  God is love and He loves you. Is that enough?  No!  Believing that God loves you is not enough!  He must be experienced!  Knowledge about love is not transformational.
