the every day walk

Make us willing to be saved in thy own way, 
    perceiving nothing in ourselves but all in Jesus.
Help us not only to receive him but to
    walk in him,
    depend upon him,
    commune with him, 
    follow him as dear children,
    imperfect, but still pressing forward,
    not complaining of labour, but valuing rest,
    not murmuring under trials, but thankful
    for our state.
And by so doing let us silence the ignorance
    of foolish men.

~ From the Valley of Vision prayer book

As I read through the entire prayer this morning, I stopped and reread this last section a couple of times.  It really is all about walking the talk.  Every day.  Before men.

It isn't just a Sunday morning thing for an hour.  It's all about walking the talk.  Every day.  Before men.

Because others are watching you.  For years.  And your life as a believer in Jesus Christ will make an impact on them when you walk the talk every day before them.  Your faith in Jesus Christ becomes a bright light drawing others closer as they watch and see it's real.  It's not you that they's Jesus Christ.

And there is nothing more praiseworthy or humbling than knowing someone has been drawn to Jesus Christ because they've watched you walk the talk every day before them.

To God be the glory for great things He has done!
