1 John 3:18 “Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.”
HIS Outspoken Mime!
The outspoken mime who speaks just with their motions is one whose consistent display…
…reminds of the talk which the Christian must walk. Thus, through Action… conveying CHRIST’s footprints.
Even so, only movement cannot tell HIS story. As such, adding Speech paints word pictures.
This Union then tells every listener — “Why?” — that HIS love has been been spoken as well.
So words sewn with actions we bring to the masses; fulfilling both parts of our purpose!
For HIS WORD tells the story of Calvary’s love which HE wrote on the Cross in HIS blood!
As HIServant serving in both word and deed with you,
Devotional: James 1:22 “But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.”
And not JUST the hearers of the word can be deceived but Those speaking just the word can be deceiving both themselves and those who listen…if they preach inaction.
Now this does not mean we must work and act with good deeds in order to gain heaven. Not at all!
But what we have heard from God through his servants who preach and teach… is to put faith into action as CHRIST HIMSELF did. Serving others.
Matthew 5:16 “…In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your FATHER WHO is in heaven.”
Recently we saw in Deuteronomy where a false prophet who had divination, who could foretell a future event and…
…and when it came true, their words didn’t credit the LORD GOD…so the false prophet was stoned.
Consequently, although the false prophet had spoken of an action that later came true, it was tied to the wrong source.
Meaning, he gave credit to something other than GOD. As such, we must act IN GOD’s ways and WITH HIS WORDS!
So we fulfill GOD’s great commission command without being a mime “busy body” who mistakes spiritually “wordless activity” for “approved accomplishment.”
Therefore, Christian! TELL of HIS amazing story seen at Golgotha AND also SHOW the heart of HIM WHO sends you out!
Amen and amen!
