Doers Vs Hearers

Dear all,

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).

 Pass it on! Proclaiming Jesus Wherever He Leads us!

spiritually fit

Word:

“Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap. Luke 21:34

This is the covenant I will establish with the people of Israel after that time, declares the Lord. I will put my laws in their minds and write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. Hebrews 8:10

Thought:

Christ is coming again and we need to watch and be spiritually fit. This means working faithfully at the tasks God has given to us. Don’t let our mind and spirit be dulled by careless living, drinking or foolishly pursuing pleasure. Don’t let the cares of this life weigh us down. Be ready to move at God’s command.

“Prepare to meet your God, O Israel” Amos 4:12b

Be Prepared and Prepare others.
