Expressing Your Faith

In the concluding two posts in his series on the "Normal Christian Life"Ben Witherington turns to personal spiritual discipline andthe sacramental.

As I read through these posts it dawned on me that we often talk about "expressing our faith" in terms of trying to bring someone else to church - but these private things, scripture reading, prayer, and sacramental worship are as much expressions of faith as is evangelism. In point of fact, without these private expressions of faith, the public ones will ring hollow.

Our witness is not built on words - it is built upon the Holy Spirit in us, working, changing, fixing. How do we access that work? We do so by these private practices and so much more.

How are you expressing you faith?
