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 who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.
We live in a pretty wild time in our culture. This picture grabs at our hearts. The lady in the purple glasses is from an era and time were life was lived and not just reordered from the sidelines. The life that Christ has for us is one that is to be experienced and that should form lasting memories in our lives and the lives of those around us.
We will not be gathering at the Silk Mill this Sunday, but rather we will turn our active worship of Jesus toward the streets and people of our city. Loving God is directly connected to how we love our neighbor and this is a great weekend to get outside yourself, join a service team, make some new friends, and spread the love of God all around.
