Talk and walk // 08-12-22

“For the Kingdom of God is not just a lot of talk; it is living by God’s power.” 1 Corinthians‬ ‭4‬:‭20‬ ‭NLT

‬‬Like we read a couple of days ago, strength is for service not status. Words are important for sure, but it’s not what we say so much as how we live that shows people the light; that makes people feel loved. An act of kindness is always going to get someone’s attention more than mere words. And Jesus is our greatest example of this, the very Word of God, who taught about the Kingdom of God, but more than just talk about it He showed it! Light was seen in the way that He loved, in His acts of compassion, in the way that He challenged injustice, in the way that He brought healing and restoration, and in the way that He overcame the power of sin and death by laying His very life down. I know I am loved by God not just because the Bible tells me so, but because He has shown it through His actions. As Christians we are also light, we reflect His light as we reach out in love! Lord, save me from just talking a good talk, help me to walk it out, for the light of Your love to be seen in actions that would cause people to see You and Your Kingdom. Strengthen me today that I might serve You well. Amen 🙌🏼😊
