“If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth.” 1 john 1:6
What we say is important, because there is great power in our words, but what we say has to be backed up with our actions. We can’t say we love God and are in meaningful relationship with Him and live life any ole way that we want to.
To say we have meaningful fellowship with Him and not back it up with the actions of our life means that we are living a lie. The problem with living a lie is that it keeps us from living in the freedom of truth.
Truth sets us free to live the everlasting and abundant life that God has promised. We need the power of our right words, but we also need the power of our right actions. Ask God for His help to get both of these right and then do all you can to do your part and you will be amazed at the fruit that your life begins to produce!
