October 9, 2014 ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER
When we are devoted to Christ, it shows. When our hearts are filled with love and our attitudes are kind and giving, it shows. What we do with our words and actions show others we love the Lord. We all need to live a saved life showing we put God first in our lives. We need to be aware of every action we take. We need to go to God and ask Him to help us resist temptation. We need to memorize scripture and share His word with others. When we are devoted to God, it shows.
James 1:22 “But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, we know if we are truly devoted to You it will show in the things we do. We know our appearance is not what people really care about and neither do You. We know what is most important is what is on the inside. Help us, today, to act like the saved Christians we are giving You the glory in all things. Guide us to serve others and tell them about You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
When we are devoted to Christ, we don’t have to tell anyone. It will show.
When we listen to God’s word and don’t take action, it’s a sin.
James 4:17 “Remember, it is sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it.” (NLT)
Devotion to God will make our actions speak louder than our words.
Both men and women who are devoted to God should do good works.
1 Timothy 2:10 “For women who claim to be devoted to God should make themselves attractive by the good things they do.” (NLT)
Focus: Our good works won’t get us to heaven but if we are devoted to God we will want to do them anyway.
