Should You Fear Business? (Tessa Thompson, Revive Our Hearts)
A godly life is one that is zealous for good works—not frazzled but focused; not distracted but devoted; not idle but intentional; not chaotic but consistent. Christ Himself was a perfect example of a godly life devoted to good works. If you read through the gospels, you will see a man who “went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil” (Acts 10:38). In short, He lived a busy life—and yet it was a busyness that was entirely holy, selfless, fruitful, and glorifying to God.

Repent and Believe (Cameron Buettel, Grace to You)
And just as vital as knowing the facts of the gospel, God’s people need to thoroughly understand the response to the gospel that His Word demands. Confusion on this detail—as much as any other point of gospel truth—is a significant hindrance to the church’s evangelistic efforts today.
