Action Time

“Hope in every sphere of life is a privilege that attaches to action. No action, no hope.” Peter Levi, poet
You know the type. Those who are all talk, but no action. When they speak, they don’t inspire much confidence in you that they will actually do what they say.
Jesus was all talk and all action.
Scripture tells us that before the creation of the world, Jesus said He was coming to redeem a fallen creation. The Father heard it. The Spirit heard it.
He could have said with chest puffed out and arms back, “I’m diving in. I’m going to take on humanity in order to die and rise again for humanity.”
He could be posing as the big rescuer, “Yup, I’m going to do it. I’ll be the One to save humanity.”
It was all talk until the moment of truth showed up. Would He or wouldn’t He enter Mary’s womb?
Thankfully, Jesus was not a posturing. Praise God He was not acting like a poser. No. He said. He acted. And we have hope today because He did.
Our world needs hope, not mere words. Let’s follow Jesus by actually doing what He has told us to do, which by the way, will inspire others to do the same.
