There is this great Elvis song that I was first introduced to through the movie Ocean’s Eleven. The song goes, "A little less conversation, a lot more action please." At Sin City tonight we had a great small group experience. We talked through 1 Corinthians 4. There is the great passage in 4:20 where Paul says, "For the Kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power." That totally blew me away as I started looking at my life through this verse. Let me put it in the form of a question for you. Are you all talk and no action when it comes to sharing your faith? quiet times? prayer? spiritual disciples? … I think you are getting the picture.
I know that if you want to see the power of God working in your life you have to do more than just talk the talk. You have to make yourself available and follow Him into the places where He is working. I want to see God come through on the promise that He will do more than I can even imagine.
What have you been studying in your quiet times recently?
