It’s pretty simple and easy to help a person by telling them what they need to do when we ourselves, don’t do it. It’s so true when they say if you “talk-the-talk” then you need to “walk-the-walk”.
When we want to help out someone and influence them towards God, we first have to have this FEAR of reflecting on our attitudes and our life. “Have I done what I’m telling others to do? Have I personally done what I’m about to advise this person to do? Does my life back up what I’m about to say about This Wonderful God? Are the people seeing Him in my life and through my attitudes?” When we have this zeal of analyzing our lives, we naturally lead people to God.
It’s not about being a perfectionist, but it’s the fact of being conscious of your attitude when you speak and act. This makes all the difference.
Speaking and writing beautiful things about God, having a conversation that leaves someone speechless about what they have to do or stop doing, is not the same as doing it. Realize that sooner or later these wonderful words will turn into a bad example leading others to do the same – have a fame of being alive when in reality they’re dead.
Let’s lead others to God with our actions! How do we do this? Show who you really are, an imperfectly simple person aspiring to be like the Lord Jesus.
You become a greater influence with your life than with your words.
Remember: Your relationship with God is reflected on your attitudes, not only your words – together they make a set.
