Be doers of the Word
James 1: 22-25 (msg)~Don’t fool yourself into thinking that you are a listener when you are anything but, letting the Word go in one ear and out the other. Act on what you hear! Those who hear and don’t act are like those who glance in the mirror, walk away, and two minutes later have no idea who they are, what they look like. But whoever catches a glimpse of the revealed counsel of God—the free life!—even out of the corner of his eye, and sticks with it, is no distracted scatterbrain but a man or woman of action. That person will find delight and affirmation in the action.
From Word Writers~James study I recently finished:
"Knowing the truth means living the truth. There's no way around it."
"I don't want head-knowledge without heart-compassion. I want to love the way Jesus loves."
From The Final Days Of Jesus, lent study by Sacred Holidays:
"Now is the time to live it out! Now is your time to do what it says."
Do you see a theme here, oh yes God I hear you! For me this message is perfect timing as I step into my Lent study and the meaning of the Lent season. I have areas in my life that I need to give up to the Lord, areas that I need HIM to work in. So if you have any areas, something holding you back, or taking your attention away from being a doer and trusting God, lets pray for one another! God will do the transforming our lives need. Let's stand together on the promises of God, HIS ancient Words hold power and truth for us to overcome. Let's trust the greatness of God and believe whole-hardheartedly.
Please feel free to share your prayer needs below. Remember you are loved by a great God! Live loved!
