SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 06/28- “Our Actions Speak Louder Than Our Words!” (1 John 3:18)
Premise Question: So, what is the truth we truly believe and live out in our daily lives; is it just expressed in our words or do our actions, that should certainly follow and line up with our speech, truly prove the truth we so loudly proclaim, declare and believe deeply, with all of our heart, soul and strength?
Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions. (1 John 3:18 NLT)
Dearly beloved children of Papa God, my precious brothers and sisters, who are the cherished offspring of The Redeemer, pay close attention to what I’m telling you, for it is of the utmost importance, being significantly most vital for you to understand and follow with great diligence; it is not adequate nor sufficient enough to merely express your love towards others through encouraging words or with eloquence of speech, but true authentic love will, and necessarily must, also be accompanied by caring, thoughtful actions, that will clearly put on display, for all to see, the truth of your love for others. For as it has been said, our actions will always speak louder and have a much greater impact, than just a mere expression of our words. (1 John 3:18 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Is it just our words, the concepts and precepts, that we think and hold to be truth in our minds and that we speak out of our mouths, with eloquence of speech and aplomb, or that we choose to keep to ourselves, for our own pleasure and benefit, protected, safely tucked, locked and hidden away in our hearts, only to be seen and known by ourselves and perhaps a select few or small circle of close friends and family enough?
Or, is it truly, also, an absolute imperative necessity, that we love each other and others, with more than just beautiful rhetoric, uttered with eloquence of speech and words of encouragement, but also, to be followed up with our own deliberate actions of generosity and good deeds being expressed and shown towards and done for others?
YES! ABSOLUTELY! Our words and thoughts are not enough! For our walk absolutely needs to line up with and completely support, being in total compliance, with our talk!
Therefore, our walk and our talk needs to come into full agreement with, and then, to be closely followed up and matched by, our attitudes, activities and our actions, no matter what we are doing or may be involved in, every moment of each day, by strongly influencing and guiding our daily practices and thoughts, everyday of our lives!
I pray that our lives will truly become a demonstration of Papa God’s love, joy and power, by releasing, refreshing and renewing, with His efficacious righteous deliverance, all those we are given opportunity to touch, with His unfailing, lavishing love, matchless mercy and glorious grace!
Rise up Church of The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty! Let The Great Company of The Redeemed say so!
Why? Because, our actions do speak louder than our words! Blessings…
