Walk the Talk

“So why do you keep calling me ‘Lord, Lord!’ when you don’t do what I say?”’

(Luke 6:46 NLT)

Jesus’ followers still face a similar problem today. While giving Him the supreme title of “Lord,” we struggle with putting His words into practice. That’s why in his letter, the apostle James addressed this problem. He wrote:

But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves. For if you listen to the word and don’t obey, it is like glancing at your face in a mirror. You see yourself, walk away, and forget what you look like. But if you look carefully into the perfect law that sets you free, and if you do what it says and don’t forget what you heard, then God will bless you for doing it. (James 1:22-25 NLT)

The old saying, “actions speak louder than words,” applies just as much to our Christian life as it does to everything else. And like little children who are taught to “show and tell,” we, as Christians, are encouraged to do so the same when it comes to our walk with God.

Christ’s followers must walk the talk.
