What we say and what we do should line up. When they don’t, our lives are ugly to God.
Matthew 7:21, 22, 23
Romans 2:17-24 – God expected the Jews (i.e. the descendants of Abraham) to be “a light to the nations” (Acts 13:47; Isaiah 42:6; 49:6) by word and deed – not by word only.
Romans 15:18 – Paul makes the point that the obedience of the Gentiles he had secured was by “word and deed” – that is, both.
2 Timothy 2:19
1 John 2:6
Psalm 15:4 – The righteous man sticks to what he has said even if it causes him pain.
Ecclesiastes 5:4, 5, 6 – Once a vow (i.e. a promise) comes out of your mouth, you need to make your behavior align with it.
