Aug. 17 Devotion:Actions, Not Titles!

Actions, Not Titles!

I heard on Wednesday where the first official Democratic person put their name I’m the running for 2020 President. Part of his statement all centered around what “party” the country needed. We don’t need a certain party, we need actions!

Same thing in the spiritual sense for our country. Christian is a title that seems to be thrown around like it’s nothing. People just use it to describe themselves like it has no meaning. The Bible tells us about a change:

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

This doesn’t say that we are perfect, but we should have different desires and pursue different things in our lives. If we are going to say we are a Christian then those around us should see something different! Our neighbors know if we don’t go to church but once a week, our co-workers hear the language we use, and those in the community know how we act and if we “socially” do anything.

If you have someone shaming your family name out in public, somewhere inside of you, you wish you could change their name. How do you think Christ feels? We call ourselves Christians, yet we act more like the world. We can call ourselves Christians just the same as I can say I’m a pro golfer. A title means nothing. It’s our actions that prove the truth in us!!

What are your actions proving today?

God bless you today!
