Today, Ed Mathew’s devotional is based in Philemon.
Faith in action is powerful. It reveals the riches of living in Jesus. It leads others to see the beauty of Christianity. It draws people to the Lord. The most convincing faith is a demonstrated faith, II Thessalonians 1:11,12. Actions are more persuasive than words.
Focus question: How does your faith show itself at home, at school, in the workplace, in the congregation?
Update: This was supposed to have been sent to my microblog, but it’s still OK for here.

“Practice these things, immerse yourself in them, so that all may see your progress.”
1 Timothy 4.15 ESV
“These things” refer to Timothy’s work as an evangelist. The second phrase is literally, “be in them.” Timothy doesn’t seek to impress others as his motivation, but he is to influence others by his example.
How can we be totally immersed in serving God? How does one shine one’s light without wanting to be seen by others as a personal motivation?

Tremendous article on doing what you want and should. I read it once, going for second time. I don’t know anything about the site other than this article that I read, but I’ll risk recommending it to you. Obviously, one needs to fit this into the spiriitual motivation and will of God, but it’s very pratical. http://is.gd/be_a_doer
