KNOW IT AND DO IT


John 8:12


"When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said,
'I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me
will never walk in darkness, but will have the light
of life.'" (NIV)


"Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am
the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not
walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life."
(KJV)


We can read all about sanctification, growing in the
Lord, and walking in the Spirit. But, this only serves
to educate our minds. Obedience to the Lord and His
Word is what will change our hearts and bring about
the wonderful work of sanctification, spiritual growth,
and hearing the voice of the Spirit. Reading about it
only makes us think about the time we will have it.
Obedience results in it happening to us now.


Heavenly Father, we ask you to forgive us for sitting
passively by, reading about the life we are to be
living in you. Help us to be obedient in the light you
have given to us and prepare us for the light that is
ahead. We ask this in Jesus' name. Amen.

Oh this is so true. I'm reminded of the Scripture, not to just be a hearer of the word, but a doer.

Beautiful photo!
