For the next six weeks we will be examining some of the things we do as Christians and asking God to show us clearly if we are living lives of action or activity. We are busy people, there are things that we are supposed to do, that are very important and yet in the midst of them we have the ability to simply go through the motions. The life of Jesus shows us clearly that each movement, each prayer, each act and even each word can be led by the movement of the Holy Spirit. Lives of action are lives in which we move because God is leading not simply because we are trying to cross things off of a list, fulfill a requirement or avoid being found lacking. I pray that over the next six weeks we will set down activity done for our own good and take up action that is done for the glory of God, for the good of those around us and for our own desire to live lives of obedience and love.
