Be Doers of the Word
But be doers of the word, and not merely hearers who deceive themselves. For if any are hearers of the word and not doers, they are like those who look at themselves in a mirror, for they look at themselves and, on going away, immediately forget what they were like. (James 1:22-24)
So listening to the truth, and letting it be implanted in our heart and head, is not enough? Having cleaned up our act and repented, is that not sufficient? Is not right belief all that was expected, that if we had the talk down, that was all that would be demanded of us………what more is God hoping from us?
God our heavenly Father, help us to learn from these thoughts from James and may these lessons strengthen our own belief about Christ’s demands to serve those in our community whose fortunes are less than our own. Please give us steadfast courage, passion and resolve to make this challenge to be doers of Christ’s word a part of our ministry. Amen
