A place of writing and reflection…
Imagine with me, if you will. A young man, or woman, goes to school to be a surgeon. They go through medical school. Receive all their training. Become a doctor. Get hired in one of county’s best Emergency Rooms. Then, they walk into the operating room, pull up a chair, and then just sit and watch people die.
This is a picture of what we do as Christians when we read our Bible, go to church, hear the word of God, and yet do nothing God is calling us to do.
Our faith is nothing if we don’t put it into action.
But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing. If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person’s religion is worthless. Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.
