Many times we never get to the doing, and it’s in the doing of our faith that things start to change. Only when we do what we know we should do will we start to honestly live what we say we believe. That’s simple enough, right? This is kindergarten theology. Do what God tells you to do. It’s not enough to just believe. Those who don’t live what they believe are hypocrites. None of us like hypocrites.

The doing is the water sprayed onto the blooming flowers by a caring gardener. It is the salt added to bland food. It’s the remodeling of an old house. It’s the difference between a hypocrite and an authentic believer. It’s when belief conceives. . . . . . .And it’s a matter of spiritual life and death. All the spiritual passion and activity we can muster will be totally useless if we never decide to submit to that truth and practice it in our daily lives.
