Walking The Walk, Talk the Talk
Mark 11: 13,14
When Jesus bring hungry, he saw that the fig tree
did not have any figs in it. He said to it, "No one
ever again shall eat fruit from you."
Tells us the next morning the fig tree completely
With all fruit trees if there are leaves there is
fruit under the leaves. When Jesus saw that it had
leaves but no fruit, He cursed it, because it was a
phony - where there are leaves, there is to be
fruit to. (Good Point - Joyce Meyer)
If our lives revolve around the church but we have
no fruit, we are not living by our faith. We can have
Christian bumper stickers on our cars, wear Jesus
pins, carry our Bibles around, spend the lunch
break cursing, drinking, reading our bibles,
plaques listing, the fruits of the spirit, watching
filth on TV, listening to teaching tapes, saying,
"Praise the Lord!" Hollers, but if we do not have
time to help anyone else out or even show them
forgiveness and kindness, we are like the fig tree
with leaves but no fruit.
If someone calls you, and needs you to do something
for them and you tell them you just can't, I'm sorry
I hope you understand, had plans, or my house is
filthy etc. If you could've changed your plans and
you refused to, you are being selfish and are like
the fig tree a phony.
People say they will always be there and they are
not, and wonder why they may be sick, some cannot
help the way they end up, and it's our jobs as
Christians to give Jesus' Love to other's.
may be people whom their faith is weak or some say
awww they want to be the
way they are. People who claim to be a Christian and
love God, they do not want to help others or do
for them, and they make excuses why they can't, they
become a phony Christian, phony fig tree.
People want to see Christians a real Christian,
people will be watching you listening to you, and if
you can't do the walk and the talk, then you can
push others away from God instead of closer to him.
We are to give away Jesus' love and His goodness
like candy and popcorn or coca cola, it's free, it's
not be charged for.
are so many people in this world, who are so
uncaring, people who say, 'well if you give me xxx
dollars I'll be glad to do this or that for you, in
return for the money. I'll make sure I do a good
job, but what they forget is this; GOD IS
WATCHING and LISTENING to how we show His mercy,
His grace, His Love, and compassion.
careful in whom may be watching you because we as
Christians are to Walk the Walk and Talk that
Talk. we are to bring people to Christ not make
them runaway from Christ!
