They need to see Jesus
Be doers of the Word and not merely listeners-James 1:22 AB
Talk is cheap is something that we've all heard at some point within our lives. A couple of weeks ago after church me, a few others and my pastor were engaged in a conversation with that very phrase being heart of the entire conversation. As our little chat progressed we all came to the conclusion that we can talk about Jesus all day long but in reality people actually need to see Jesus.
Now I know that you're probably asking how does one go about seeing Jesus without first making a trip to the upper room known as heaven much less feeling Him. Believe it or not the answer is quite simple! People in or around our lives get to experience Jesus through His people being doers of the word as mentioned in the above verse.
But what exactly does being a doer of the word mean? I'm so glad that you asked that question. Being a doer of the word is best described in such verses as of James 1:27 (helping needy orphans and widows); Hebrews 13:16 (not neglecting to do good and sharing what you have) and finally Acts 20:35 (remembering that it is more blessed to give than to receive). Those are all great examples of letting people see Jesus instead of just hearing about Him.
