Receive God's Warm Love Through Reflection

Be doers of the word

on June 26, 2013

“Do what God’s teaching says; when you only listen and do nothing, you are fooling yourselves.” (NCV version) – James 1:22

I put the New Century Version translation because I thought it was simple yet clear, but other translations such as KJ21 state to “be doers of the word”. We shall go beyond just listening and knowing His word, but go out and do it.

God gives us these messages in the Bible, and He gives us the time to worship and to hear sermons at church – all to go out and be faithful active Christians. Don’t be a fool and ignore what you’ve learned and what you’ve been given! Be wise and go do what God is telling you to do and what He’s given for you to do. Nike’s slogan “just do it” fits quite nicely here.
