You’ve probably said or heard someone else say, “they’re just all talk”. No one wants to be known as just a windbag; talk can be cheap and empty.
“For the kingdom of God is not based on talk but on power.”
(I Cor 4:20 AMP)
The Kingdom is so much more than philosophy, more than rhetoric, more than a campaign.
It is power: the power that raised Jesus from the the dead; the power that spoke the universe into being; the power that restores broken lives; the power that heals the sick; the power of God.
It’s the power to call into being that which does not yet exist.
“As it is written, “A father of many nations have I made you” in the presence of Him whom he believed, even God, who gives life to the dead and calls into being that which does not exist. (ROMANS 4:17 NASB)
Recently we’ve talked about moving from what we’ve got to what we want, moving to a time of miracles and multiplication.
Perhaps there’s another move we can make:
To move from talk to power.
When our lives are motivated by the example of Christ and our words originate from the heart of God,
they have the power to not only mentally illuminate, but also to bring salvation. We’re not about a whole lot of talk but… living in God’s power.
See you at one of our services this weekend.
