1 Corinthians 4.20 records the kingdom of God is not just talking it is living by God’s power. images

There is a saying, ‘what we need is a lot less talk and a lot more action:’ this might be no more true than in the Church.

It is certainly easier to profess to be a Christian than it is to live like Jesus.

Many people claim to be Christians because they believe in God yet the devil believes in God but is certainly no Christian.

Obedience to God is the mark of the Christian just as obedience to God was the mark of the Savior.

Putting feet to our faith is evident when we work toward helping others become fellow lovers of God.

The goal of Jesus’ training of His disciples was that they become fishers of men; no doubt this is His same goal for His current disciples epitomized in His command for His followers to go and make disciples. If we are not involved in helping people love Jesus we are not doing the work to which we have been assigned.

Second, we live by God’s power when we reflect God’s character to the world.

Living among people in a Spirit of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control is not possible apart from God’s Spirit living within us, working-out His nature through us. Daily we have opportunity to forgive, overlook, return kindness for evil, help, serve and just generally love others: doing those things make God’s presence within us obvious as the world lives increasingly more self-absorbed, angry and indifferent.

Jesus lived His life in such a way that people were attracted to God then He shared with people how He alone is the bridge to God.

This is the life of the true Christian, the person who isn’t just talking but walking-out their life in Christ.
