So many times, we as believers, have a tendency to fall into tradition rather than in a real meaning relationship with God. Yeah, we dress-up for church on Sunday mornings, clap our hands all the way
through the service, and still walk outside of the church doors cursing our neighbors, turning our backs on those in need, and ignoring things that really matter.
We've mastered church on Sundays, but what about being the church from Monday to Saturday. What if we applied the same teachings that we learn on Sunday mornings to our daily life? What if we as believers in Christ could love our neighbors as ourselves? Forgiveness would become less of a struggle and compassion would actually become sincere. What if we could bear with one another in the arms of mercy and grace? We would be able to look beyond one?s fault and love one another unconditionally.
My point is this, faith without works is dead. God did not save us to save ourselves. He sent us to be a light to those around. If we take our place as believers, God?s grace will abound. Learning of Christ is good, but living like Christ takes real work.
