Yesterday on the way home I was listening to the radio trying to stay awake. After a particular song was played, the DJ came on and told a story about how he loved that song and that it meant so much to him because his son’s youth group had performed a “phenomenal” black lite presentation to that song at his local church. hm…
Later in the evening, I was given the opportunity to watch Harding University’s drama team called Theatron perform several skits with a message. In one particularly impressive skit, the final message was, “it took us two minutes to write and practice this skit, and it may only stay with you for two minutes – unless you do something about it”.
So since I received the same message twice within two hours, it seemed fitting to share it with you this morning. We can’t just talk it. We can’t just say love each other. We can’t just say, yes I care about people. We can’t just say I love the Savior Jesus, we have to live it out! We can’t just sit in our churches and bounce the message off the interior walls. Live it out today!
22Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. 23Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror 24and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. James 1:22-24 (New International Version)
