How’s it going? I wanted to do something silly and fun. If you listen to modern hip hop or trap music, then you have definitely heard of The Migos. While some people condemn trap music and say that it is a bad influence ( they have a reasonable point), I like to see the good in everything.
The Migos have a song called “Walk It Like I Talk It.” It’s such a catchy song with a nice beat. Although their song may have ulterior motives, I couldn’t help but correlate it to my walk with Christ.
You’ve probably heard the saying “you can talk the talk, but can you walk the walk.” (Paraphrase)
How does that apply to your walk with Christ? I believe it’s important for us to practice what we preach. Oftentimes there are people who say with their mouths (talk it) that they are Christians, but their actions (walk it) don’t line up with the word of God. Now I am not here to judge or condemn anyone, however, I am a firm believer that by their fruit, you shall know them.
If you are a Christian, you should exude and radiate God’s love. Your words should be edifying. Your deeds should give God glory. Your life will be a reflection of his blessings. If that’s not the case, then you might need to have a reevaluation of that self-proclaimed title. I know that I am not worthy and I make mistakes. However, as trap-like and lowkey ratchet, this song is, it made me think about practicing what I preach more.
We can get so caught up in serving in the church, fellowships, bible studies and neglect the personal relationship that is the core of it all. How can we lead others to the kingdom if we are not walking like kingdom citizens? I encourage you all to truly think about embodying Godly traits before you showcase it for the world to see.
If you don’t, then you may be giving off a false persona of godliness that is being fed by the desire to seem holy on social media. Let’s be conscious not to “do it for the gram” with our relationship with God, but do it for Jesus.
That’s all I really have to say about this. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please leave me one through the contact section.
I hope you all have a wonderful day.
