Are you a verb or a noun?

Are you a verb or a noun? A challenge

Last night, I returned from the  IM1-UR1 Men’s Conference  where, among other things, the former  Green Bay Packer  Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila (KGB for short) gave an excellent presentation and challenge.   In a nutshell, he told the story of how he was raised Muslim, by his Nigerian father.   Although his Nigerian mother converted to Christianity after they moved here, KGB wasn’t impressed by the Christians he met in his early life. They lived more sinfully than he did, and whenever he asked them a challenging question, such as “Where does the Bible say that Jesus Christ is God?”€ they simply didn’t know.   He described these people as  nouns.

Later, shortly before being drafted by the Green Bay Packers, he met a Christian man who not only said he was a Christian, he actually lived it.   Once KGB was drafted by the Packers, he actually stayed with this man and saw first hand that he not only talked the talk but also walked the walk.   In addition, he met another Christian man who didn’t walk away from KGB’s questions, but actually carried his Bible with him and answered his questions.   KGB described these people as  verbs.

That’s part of the challenge that KGB had for us, and that I’m passing on to you — do you want to be a noun or a verb?  Which will impact the world for Jesus Christ?   Which does He call us to be?

Which will hear, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant – enter thou into the joy of thy Lord”?
