Walking The Talk

How many times have you heard a person say "don't just talk the the talk, walk the walk?"
I have heard that quote more times than I can count. I talk the talk a lot. It is much harder for me to walk the walk. I often find myself stumbling quite a bit. I am not honest with others when it comes to things I have done. I question why I am a "repeat offender" when it comes to sin? If my faith is so strong why is my judgement so clouded? I have read about forgiveness so many times. When I act in an ungodly manner I find myself excusing it by saying "God forgives all sins."
That was up until yesterday. I attended a retreat with my church about "Growing in Grace." The messasge was clear, if you want to share your faith with others you need to "walk the talk" in other words you use your actions to back up your words. People respect honesty. Until this morning I was making excuses. Now, I am not willing to do that any longer. Jesus died for me, I realize for the first time in my life what that means. Even though I accepted Christ five years ago, I still found myself doing ungodly things. I was still a selfish, pious, judgemental person, who was quick to point out the transgression of others. I was able to hide behind my faith, to use it for a weapon. I used this weekend to re-evaluate what I needed to do with my life, so this morning I recommitted my life to My Savior. I made a vow that I would trully cleanse my heart and accept my life responsibilities. I had a resurrection of God's purpose for my life. I am shedding my old skin, and truly accepting the cloak of salvation. I am going to "walk the talk" in all aspects of my life. I will let God be my beacon of light.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Walking the talk is never easy. Jesus told us we must take up His cross daily...His CROSS! Satan and the world beat Him so badly that even He didn't have strength to carry the load without help. With God, success is in the trying.

Wonderful article. Well written and very convicting. May God bless you and may He guide your feet as you walk the walk.
