TOPIC: HEARER OR DOER?
Bible Reading: James 1:19-25
Memorise:“(For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.” Romans 2:13
There are two classes of Bible users – the hearers only and the hearers + doers. You can only belong to one of them. Many young people spend time listening to audio/video messages, attend Church services and do intense personal Bible study. Although all these are very good, they are not the ultimate. When you hear or read Scripture, it stays in your mind.
If left there for a while without taking further steps, it will lose its meaning to you. If you desire that word to have meaningful impact on you, then, you must go the extra mile and translate it into actions. Give valuable time to meditating on the word you have heard so that you will find it easy to obey.
Also, when you ponder on Gods word, you are bound to have deeper revelations which would help you practice it. Bear in mind that God does not bless the hearer of the word, but those who hear and do the word.
Point: Become a doer of God’s word henceforth.
