"For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk, but of power"--1 Corinthians 4:20 (NIV)
Have you ever heard the expression "Talk is cheap"? There is also the saying "Walk the talk." Our faith is not just demonstrated by expressing it in words, but it consists of showing it in our actions. God has sent the Holy Spirit to give us the power to demonstrate our faith in actions and good works. In our daily lives, we are presented with opportunities to share God's kingdom with others. We can show God's love by helping the poor, caring for the sick, and sharing the Gospel with the lost. The Holy Spirit enables us to teach Sunday School, sing in the choir, and visit the sick in nursing homes and hospitals. What other opportunities do we have to exercise God's power today?
