We Do What We Believe?

As Evangelicals there are things we believe that are common. We believe that Christ is the living Son of God and that we are to follow him. He is to be our example. His example of love, grace, and mercy are to be our pattern. We are to be defined by our love and generosity not by our differences and doctrines.

That being said, I would first ask if you really believe. My grandfather, a man of both wisdom and wit used to say, “You do what you believe, everything else is religious talk.” So do we live what we say we believe? The only way those who need Christ can tell that we are his followers is by what we do. They can only see Christ centered living in the way in which we live.

If we are to represent Christ to others then we must live what we believe with them. This is not some set of rules or a false legalism that makes the actions more important than faith. It is the determination that we will follow Christ and his example in all we do. The only way others can see what we believe is if we live it. What we do is what we believe. Examine yourself Madison, and tell me what you think.
