Many “Christians” talk the talk but don’t walk the walk because it…
Interferes with their to do list.
Adversely affects their reputation.
Anonymity, not recognition is their reward.
The recipient can’t or refuses to reciprocate their kindness.
Includes loving those of different ethnic, cultural or religious backgrounds.
Christianity that non-believers distrust because it doesn’t look like Jesus.
Stand idly by as the world goes to hell in a hand basket.
Become lackadaisical in their pursuit of being made into the image of Christ.
Rest on their laurels or previous victories.
We need to be men and women whose faith, worship, prayers and service to others are birthed from a heart that is wildly in love with Jesus Christ our noble King.
A King unlike any earthly king.
A King who despite the disloyalty of His subjects never abandons them, never stops loving them.
A King whose grace empowers His Church to become a bride worthy of His undying love and return.
Brothers and sisters, it doesn’t make any sense to say you have faith and act in a way that denies that faith. Mere talk never gets you very far, and a commitment to Jesus only in words will not save you.
It would be like seeing a brother or sister without any clothes out in the cold and begging for food, and saying, “Shalom, friend, you should get inside where it’s warm and eat something,” but doing nothing about his needs. Leaving him cold and alone on the street.
What good would your words alone do?
