Talking vs Living

I came across this quote by Mark Batterson.

Most of us are educated way beyond our level of obedience. We don't need more information. We need more transformation. We need to stop explaining what people already understand. A little less explanation. A lot more exhortation.

I have been reading the New Testament each day one message keeps coming up again and again. Live. Go out into the world and change lives through Christ.

People know about God. People know about Christ. Our primary purpose isn't to educate.

We're here to transform the people around us for the rest of their lives, both here on earth and afterward. Our purpose is to talk about how Christ has changed our lives, and bring his Love to everyone.

Peace,

+Tom
