The PEMS are a break down of how we see our spiritual walk. These are not the only areas, and in other circumstances or places they may be called something else. This is a good way for all of us to get an idea of what we are working on, and how each one of these things builds us in to character-rich spiritual people.
We strive to be a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) group of people. There are no hidden agendas, we can say whatever it is we think of you to your face, and we just might! Our desire is to be open and honest with ourselves, with God, and with others.
Walk it Out
When we say walk it out we mean just that. Whatever it takes to get us moving, to keep us doing, that is what we will do. In James Ch. 2, James writes, “Dear friends, do you think you'll get anywhere in this if you learn all the right words but never do anything? Does merely talking about faith indicate that a person really has it?”...“I can already hear one of you agreeing by saying, 'Sounds good. You take care of the faith department, I'll handle the works department.' Not so fast. You can no more show me your works apart from your faith than I can show you my faith apart from my works. Faith and works, works and faith, fit together hand in glove.”
