Be Doers of the Word

“I’d rather see the way you live first and find out you’re a Christian than hear about your Christianity and find out you’re a fraud.” @jane.elisabeth.lewis

I follow Jane on twitter for her thoughts on modern Christianity and culture and this tweet in particular jumped out at me. There are some strong James 1:22-25 vibes here:

“But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.”
