Proving the Truth – September 30, 2022

“Oh, your walk talks and your talk talks, but your walk talks louder than your talk talks” is a phrase that was running through my head while Jad preached on James 3:13ff.  It’s an axiom or a truism in that it’s self evident – no proof required.  So if we walk, live out our lives, in wisdom (fear of the Lord) we can be assured that it communicates.  It communicates that we are the real thing and that God’s Word has had an impact.  But if we want to see souls saved, we also have to speak.

“How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher?” 

Romans 10:14

So, Pastor, you’re saying we have to both walk wisely and speak the words of truth?  

Yes, but not just me; the Holy Spirit wrote it, through Paul, to believers in Colossae!   

Conduct yourselves with wisdom toward outsiders, making the most of the opportunity.  Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt, so that you will know how you should respond to each person.” 

Colossians 4:5-6

Finally, walking in wisdom and speaking the gospel truth, is necessary at home, at church, at work; but if we only walk with, and speak to, those who already know; if we don’t let the salt out of the shaker; if we only water what’s already been planted; we will never get to witness new growth or advance His church in the way that most matters – bringing in those sheaves!   

So let’s get out there and walk God’s walk and talk God’s talk where it’s neither being walked or talked.  Personal invitations to Jesus, and to church for that matter, is the best way to see new fruit!
