I came across this quote from Donald Miller:

“I can’t imagine what would happen if every Christian felt it incumbent upon themselves to worship Christ through serving the poor and oppressed, and reaching out to the marginalized. More and more this has become religion to me. Not that reading the Psalms under a flickering candle isn’t beautiful, but faith should find action quick.”

So what would happen if Christians stopped talking and started acting? What if we took the words of Jesus literally? What if we truly believed (faith & action) the following statements of Jesus:

“Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.”

“I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”

“The greatest among you will be your servant. For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.”

“…I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you…”

“In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in Heaven.”

What would these things look like in every day life? How can the church participate in this as well?
