For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power. – 1 Corinthians 4:20

Paul is in the midst of rebuking the Corinthian Christians when he makes this stunning statement. Where is the power in what we believe? Church services and Bible studies are good, but they are not there just to make us feel good; these gatherings are to equip us for engaging the world around us with the life of Christ. Most American Christians have talked enough. With the Internet, books, radio, and other media we have all the information that we could ever want! It’s time for action in our neighborhoods, our workplaces and our families. As the book of James tells us, faith without works is dead.
