May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of Holy Spirit. Romans 15: 13
Listening and Doing:
But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves.
James 1: 22 – 25
It is important to listen to what God’s Word says, but it is much more important to obey it and to do what it says. We can measure the effectiveness of our Bible study time by the effect it has on our behavior and attitudes. Do you put into action what you have studied?
Matthew 7:24-27 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
The Two Foundations
24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and [a]acts on them, [b]may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 And the rain fell, and the [c]floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock. 26 Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not [d]act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. 27 The rain fell, and the [e]floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell—and great was its fall.”
When a person is truly born again, he has the Spirit of God living within (Romans 8:9), and the Spirit enables him to know and do the Father’s will. God’s love in his heart (Rom 5:5) motivates him to obey God and serve others.
Obedience to God’s word – Evidence of true faith (James 2: 14).
