When I read this verse one person comes to mind. I read a tweet from this person the other day and my heart goes out to all he and his teams are accomplishing. Here’s the tweet.

. He is so driven by action he created the Dream Center in Los Angeles. This place has been a constant flow of blessing to so many Angelanos during this time. So much so — that they have been feeding THOUSANDS of people. When I watch what Pastor Matthew is doing — it’s unbelievably contagious. I love it.

Here’s what he had to say after Los Angeles made a statement of three more months of lockdown.

They’ve been at it for 60 straight days feeding nearly 14,000 people per day. You show me 1 John 3:18, I’ll show you Pastor Matthew. Such an incredible human being.

When you and I begin to do the same — this verse in 1 Peter will stop being vague and start becoming victories for us. Instead of saying more than we are doing — we start doing more than we are saying — and that’s your purpose.
