Romans 1:8 First I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you because your faith is proclaimed in all the world.
Words are cheap. They come easy, some even have silver tongues that pretty words just drip from. Many don’t mean what they say. Even believers will paint their lives, actions, and beliefs with a better picture than what is truth. We can tell others how much we love God; how much we serve Him, but the truth is somewhat dimmer. This we know. We know that our actions speak with greater truth than our words. Our actions show that we love and serve Him. Our actions show that what we do is for Him and not just for accolades. The life of the Roman believer would have had no room for pretty words. It was not an easy life. Yet, their faith was renowned in all the world. We are probably lucky if our neighbors know of our love and devotion to God.
