Rev. Esther Jadhav – “People of Action!”
“Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.” -- James 1:22
Simply telling someone “I love you” is not sufficient. Love necessitates action. When we love someone, we need to show that we care. We need to perform certain actions that indicate our love and care. Also by giving gifts of different kinds we can demonstrate our love. The actions we take and the gifts we give demonstrate our love and care towards persons we love. Similarly, God calls us to be people of action demonstrating His love to people around us. James explicitly states that it is never sufficient to know the right things to do, it is important to do the right things.
What is God calling you to do today? Is He calling you to help someone? Let your actions demonstrate! Is God calling you to be kind to a stranger today? Let your actions demonstrate. Is God calling you to be honest in your transactions today? Let your actions demonstrate.
