Day 220 – August 9
Talk is Cheap
“Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.”
1 John 3:18
Maybe the hardest thing we deal with every day is to live a life of action instead of talk. The world doesn’t recognize real love because they so rarely see it on display. If we try to prove to ourselves we are doing “good things,” we will tell everyone and forget the point of the process. But when true heart-change takes place, what we do will be the result of what God has done in us first. Then and only then will people take notice and want what we have. The first step in changing the culture is for God to change our hearts and make us more like Jesus. The wildfire of change always begins with the spark within, and that change can start right now in you.
Ask the Holy Spirit to show you things in your life right now and ask Him to change your heart.
Pray this simple prayer with me today and be still to listen for the Lord’s voice in your life. Lord speak to me.
Lord show me. Lord change me in Jesus’ name. AMEN!
We’re more than conquerors in Christ.
