Talk is cheap, but walk is difficult, sometimes.
You can talk all day long, but what God is mostly concerned, and people around us, is to see our walk, the spiritual walk in Christ we have, not just the words.
Our walk, proves our talk. If we do not walk the talk, we are like an empty glass, which can not fulfill its own purpose, because there is nothing in it…
The Apostle John said, as recorded in the Bible, that we should not love with words, but with actions. Our actions are the stamp, or the signature, which proves the validity or our Christian ‘cheque’.
Just like faith without deeds, is dead, so is our Christian talk, which will become, dead and empty, if it is not accompanied by our faith walk, or a spiritual walk in Christ.
Our real transformation or change from above, is mainly proven, by how we walk, in the ways of God, not just by our spiritual talk.
It is easy to make the talk, but often, it is difficult to make the walk. Our Christian walk is where most of the grace and power of God is needed, in order to enable us, to do the right actions, in a difficult situation.
In Matthew 5:16, it says that our light should shine before men, so that they will see our good works. Notice it says they should see our good works, not our good words. Even people in this world, want to to see how we live, on a daily basis, not what we talk and preach.
It says they should see our good works, by us letting our light shine, before them. But we do not not have our own light. The light that we have, is the light of God, or from God, because God is Light. So, if we are born again Christians, we have already, the light of God in us.
That is what people in this world, want to see, not us. But although we have the light of God in us, we still have to make a choice to do actions, which will be motivated by that light in us, and will reflect the light of God in us.
Jesus who is the Light, wants to shine through us, and our actions, to the people in this world, who live in darkness. Will we let him do so?
