Thoughts for the Week Ahead
Many Christians are willing to talk about their faith and about the Lord. Unfortunately, not all of those are obediently translating their faith into the actions and conduct commanded by the Lord. The number of those talking the talk includes some not walking the walk. Said another way, the “hearers only” of God’s Word are not the same as the faithful doers of that same Word. This is not pleasing to God, and He deals with this issue extensively in the Scriptures. May the Lord lead each of us into a heartfelt self-examination this week.
