“For I will not dare to speak of anything except what Christ has accomplished through me to lead the Gentiles to obedience by word and deed.” (Romans 15:18)
Today, Paul reminds us that we must evangelize both by word and deed. It is easy to evangelize people by word alone. It is easy to talk with people about what is right and what is wrong. Some evangelists are more eloquent than others and reach more people; some evangelists can write great books, articles, and blogs about God. Yet, the true evangelizer is one who performs his or her deeds along with what they preach; they “talk the talk and walk the walk.” As Paul reminds us today, there is not denying that Christ requires both ministries. Let’s keep this in our hearts as we go about living in Christ; not by word alone but also by deed.
May God bless you. Happy Friday!!!
