Isaiah 29:13 Therefore the Lord said: "In as much as these people draw near with their mouths And honor Me with their lips, But have removed their hearts far from Me, And their fear toward Me is taught by the commandment of men."
Teach me Lord to speak with more than just words,
How useless is a man whose words are what portray You,
For Your words weren't what saved me,
And my words aren't what make me
Shut the mouth of my heart and mind,
And perk up my ears
Let Your statutes move me,
Let Your love lead me.
I have plenty to say but even more to do,
My only offering is letters on paper,
How weightless a gift!
What good are words without love?
What good is love without action?
Let my love speak through actions,
Let my faith be seen through works,
For what is faith without works?
What is love without weight?
Faith without works is dead,
Words without love is noise,
Love without works is hollow,
And a man without You is nothing...
1 John 3:18 My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth.
James 1:22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
