Words and Actions

Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like.
Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by what I do.
Lets not be Christ followers only by title or by word of mouth, but by demonstration through our entire lives. No rock is left unturned - Jesus demands all of our lives, and 99% is not sufficient. He wants us to deny ourselves, take up our cross - die to our selfish nature, and to live a life which wholeheartedly follows Him.

We need to listen to what the Bible says AND to do what it says; to have our faith in Jesus AND show it outworking in all of our lives. One without the other just doesn't work.

Are you following Christ 100%? Can you humble yourself to handing all your 'crowns' to God and living a Christ-centred life? Our lives are a testimony to the world which, in all aspects of our lives, should point to the impact of the cross of Christ in our lives.
