4/21 Days of Prayer
James 1:22 (NKJV)
But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
Have you ever watched an infomercial on working out and thought, “This is the thing that will give me the 6-pack abs I’ve dreamed of all my life!!!” I’ve done this lots of times. But I know that until I go online, purchase the videos, and start doing the workouts my abs will remain hidden. Sometimes we do this with the word of God.
We know it has the power to make us stronger, wiser, happier, and more loving, but sometimes we are satisfied with reading it and aren’t willing to start doing what it’s telling us to do.
James is basically telling us, it’s one thing to hear the word, but when you start doing what it says, it has the power to change everything in your life.
Lord, give me a passion for Your word and help me to put into practice the things that I see in it. In Jesus name, Amen.
Tip: Sometimes people ask where they should start reading their Bible. I usually tell them to start in John and read until you hit Revelations… and then start again.
