Let's talk about "Doing" vs "Being", or maybe let's talk about "Doing" without "Being".
In the past couple of decades, there has been a lot of emphasis on just "being". It is valuable to "be".
Be in God's presence.
Know who you are as a believer.
Rest in His love without striving.
Seep yourself in gratefulness that salvation cannot be earned, but only can come through receiving.
THIS IS ALL INVALUABLE! Our foundational core needs to be centered!
Yet somehow in the midst of it all "doing" got a bad rap. I find myself with James on this.
My brothers and sisters, if people say they have faith, but do nothing, their faith is worth nothing. Can faith like that save them? James 2:14
Pretty clear to me.
And yet I get it. If we have only "doing" or works, we are completely missing the point of grace.
"Doing" gets a bad rap when it is not preceded by "being".
Ephesians 2:10 says, "God has made us what we are. In Christ Jesus, God made us to do good works, which God planned in advance for us to live our lives doing."
When "doing" comes out of our relationship with God, that changes everything! God made us for good works and "planned them in advance" for us individually.
I truly believe God designed each of us to have unique interests, skills, and passions in accordance with the good works He has for us to "live our lives doing".
