James 1:17-27

Yes, we need to hear God’s word for us, but it’s never been about just hearing.  Yes we are called to believe God’s word for us, but it’s always been about more than mere cognitive assent.  We are called to “do,” to actually live the way of live we are taught.  Caring for those in need – those who might not have others by their side.  As they say, “actions speak louder than words.”  Remember – everything we do is a lesson to the world about what we believe.   Showing is telling.  Acting is preaching.  Doing is saying.  What the world learns about what we believe, it will learn by what we do.  How are we “do”ing?
