VerseD: Colossians 3:17

And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

Our God has given us everything, most of all salvation in Christ His Son. Let us give thanks, worshipping in everything we do.

VerseD: 1 John 3:18

Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.

1 John 3:18, ESV

It is not enough to talk about love and kindness if we never do anything about it.

Let us help each other in needs and growing in the hope Christ.

VerseD: James 1:22-24

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.

James 1:22‭-‬24, ESV

If we only read the Bible but never apply it to our own lives, or we merely apply it to others, we risk leading others away from Christ. We risk remaining lost.

VerseD: Acts 3:19

“Repent therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out”

If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.

It is not enough to call yourself Christian. If you are not seeking Christ and His Kingdom (and sharing the truth of the Gospel) you are in danger of showing you are not a Christian.

VerseD: James 1:22-24

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.
James 1:22‭-‬24, ESV

Merely listening to biblical teachings

(and talking about being a Christian) and never obeying or acting out the teachings is like having amnesia or being an actor.
Don’t play a part. Obey and love.

VerseD: 1 John 3:18

Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.
1 John 3:18, ESV

Too many people say one thing yet do another or even the opposite. May we live out the Gospel of peace and hope as we share it with this twisted world. 

VerseD: 1 Corinthians 16:13-14

Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love.
1 Corinthians 16:13‭-‬14, ESV

Be careful to not let the ways of world affect your life and faith. Be bold in the Gospel and in sacrificially loving others by the power of the Holy Spirit.

VerseD: Romans 8:6

For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.
Romans 8:6, ESV

Where you focus your thoughts determines how you act.
Do you focus in earthly pleasures or worldly woes?
Or do you focus on God, His Word, and our eternal destination?
