LISTENING AND DOING



Listening to the Word brings faith. But that is only the beginning. If we do not do what the Word says, we are deceived by thinking all we need to do is listen and know the Word to be safe and secure. Obedience by doing is what makes our faith alive. Knowing and listening to the Word with faith and not doing what the Word says makes our faith just like a corpse.

Heavenly Father, we ask that you help us do what your Word says so that our faith will be alive and fruitful for your kingdom. In Jesus' Name.

Read James 1:22

"Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. (NIV)

"But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves." (KJV)

Yep. Often easily said not so easily done. Where our lack of faith is there too will be our biggest struggle.
God bless you.
