Talking the talk . . . .
“All that the LORD has spoken we will do!” (Exodus 19:8; 24:3, 7).
Israel made this pledge only weeks before worshiping the golden calf (Exodus 32:1-35).
Similarly, Peter denied he would deny Christ, then denied Him anyway (Matthew 26:31-35).
Though Peter stumbled badly, he repented thoroughly.
Have we ever talked a good religion but failed to follow through?
Walking the walk
If we have confessed Christ and been united with Him in baptism, let’s hold true to our confession! If we’ve fallen short like Peter, let’s turn back before our hearts grow cold.
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9),
God is faithful. Let’s reflect His faithfulness!
