Be a “Do-er”!

“But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.”  -James 1:22

Have you ever looked at your watch and had someone then ask what time it is, only to then have to look back at your watch because you can’t remember the time? (Even though hardly two seconds had passed since you looked at the watch?

It is amazing how we quickly we can let things slip from our memory, isn’t it? In the context of the verse above, we are reminded we often do this with God’s Word. We hear it, or read it and then five seconds later we can’t remember it.

But, James says it goes even further than remembering, we must do what it says. If our finite minds would allow us to memorize the whole Bible, that would be amazing. But, this passage tells us that if we don’t do what it says, it is all for nothing.

We are called throughout scripture to a practical faith. From the Old Testament prophet, “Obedience is better than sacrifice,” to Christ, “If you love Me, keep My commandments.”

Look for ways to live out your faith today!
