I like what a Buddhist monk once said. “To know and not to do is not yet to know.”
To translate that into Christian terminology it could be, “To believe and not to act is not yet to believe.” In other words, if I say I believe without Christ people are eternally lost, and never do anything to point or even to help point others to Christ, do I really believe people without Christ are lost? And if I say I believe Jesus is coming again and the lost will be left behind, and I never do anything to help point them to Christ, do I really believe Jesus is coming again and the non-Christians will be left behind?
So I agree with the monk who said, “To know and not to do is not yet to know.”
This is from the ACTS International’s Global Communications Outreach, which promotes being an effective “Andrew” type witness for Christ by becoming an ACTS People Power for Jesus Partner.
THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.
