Zach Williams: Walk the Walk
Oh, I have days I lose the fight
Try my best but just don’t get it right
Well I talk a talk that I don’t walk
And miss the moments right before my eyes
“Well I talk a talk that I don’t walk…” – that lyric is something that I pray about a lot. When I think
about being more like Jesus, the last thing I want to do is speak about His love but then act a
different way. The desire of my heart is to live out that love… but sometimes, well, most times, I
need God’s help to catch me in those moments – not to shame me but to help me live a more
meaningful life and have a deeper relationship with Him.
Social media allows us to say a lot – but my encouragement for you is to pray for the words that
you speak (or type) to flow out of God’s love. Pray that you can walk the walk with others like
Jesus taught His children to do. Your influence as a believer spreads farther than you may
realize. My prayer for you is to feel empowered in that truth so that you may speak Jesus’ love
into the world and follow it up with actions that reflect Him.
Some questions for us to reflect on:
Are my words AND actions reflecting Jesus’ love?
Have I given my life to Jesus but turned around and judged others?
What are opportunities in my life where I can ‘walk the walk’?
Prayer: Lord, thank you for giving me a love that’s worth talking about but help me to walk it out
in my life.
Matthew 5: 16
In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and
give glory to your Father who is in heaven
