IF There’s People You Are Trying To Reach, Practice What You Preach

blah blah blah

Your actions speak louder than what you say.                                                                    .

Many of you are familiar with the saying “Let your light shine.”.

Matthew 5:16 says let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

1 Peter 3:1-2 Living Translation 1-2 Wives, fit in with your husbands’ plans; for then if they refuse to listen when you talk to them about the Lord, they will be won by your respectful, pure behavior. Your godly lives will speak to them better than any words.                                                                                        .                            .

As people of God, we have the ability to love. God commands us to love even the most difficult people and others that don’t share our belief in Jesus or God.

Jeremiah 31:2-4 says with loving kindness God draws us to Him.

Romans 2:4 says it is the goodness of God that leads to repentance.                                                                                                                      

If we catch someone in a fault we should address it in love.

Ephesians 4:15 says speak the truth in love.                                                                       

Galatians 6:1 Amplified Version says Brothers, if anyone is caught in any sin, you who are spiritual [that is, you who are responsive to the guidance of the Spirit] are to restore such a person in a spirit of gentleness [not with a sense of superiority or self-righteousness], keeping a watchful eye on yourself, so that you are not tempted as well.                                                                         

We all need someone we are accountable to. If we mess up, repent, take responsibility for our actions, and ask for God’s help.

What you believe should be demonstrated, not debated, to impact a person’s life .

If it’s people you are trying to reach, practice what you preach!
