Doers of the Word
"But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves."
The word of God should spur us into
doing His will...
offering love and kindness...
strengthening the weak...
encouraging one another with the hope that is to come...
building one another’s faith...
sowing seeds of righteousness and...
reaping the harvest of salvation.
God’s word is alive and active and should be working in the hearts of all who hear it.
"For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart."
To do nothing, as we sit week after week listening to the Bible being taught, begs the question - “Do you truly understand what is being taught? Have you allowed the Word of God to transform you?"
"Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect."
Pray for Gods help. He will answer!
"If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him."
Do you need strengthening? Encouragement? Edification? The building up of your faith, in order to live what you hear, to gain the confidence to share? This, too, is an action. Ask those in leadership your questions. No question put before a loving fellowship is too dumb or inane. Become part of a Bible study to learn more deeply what the Word of God says.
"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God."
God’s Word was never meant to be kept secret. Like a yummy morsel, it is meant to be shared and enjoyed by others.
Whether learning or teaching God’s Word, let us be thankful for His loving kindness that draws us nearer to Him.
"And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near."
