“The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you” (Philippians 4:9).
Though the Apostle Paul occasionally addressed doctrinal error in his writings, his greater concern for the gospel was its expression in the world. Speaking up about the things of God is as much about our actions as it is our voices. Telling must be accompanied by showing. We say, “Actions speak louder than words;” not in terms of decibels but “more candidly,” “more honestly.” Our actions prove to be the most reliable indicator of our actual beliefs. Let us live in such a way that our words come through loud and clear.
