James 1:22-27 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do. Those who consider themselves religious and yet do not keep a tight rein on their tongues deceive themselves, and their religion is worthless. Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
Sometimes we just have to get up off of our chairs and go do church. We need to get off of our religious knowledge trip and intellectual comprehension of love and just go love. We need to change the word religion in the lives and minds of people from a noun to a verb. Our Christian religion shouldn’t be a person place or thing; it should be a relationship with Jesus Christ. And if we want to be like Jesus we have to move, we have to get up, we have to go to those who need our love; His love.Go and learn. Go and love.
