But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does. James 1:22-25 NKJV
We have to do more then just read and study His Word. We have to apply it in our lives. We cannot say that we are believers just by reading and believing. Being a believer means we are using His Word and letting it change our lives. We’re letting it cause us to know Who He Truly is and then acting accordingly. We can’t just simply say we believe and not let it change us.
To allow change means that we are being obedient. It means that we’re are sharing His Love with others. It means that we are Trusting Him to carry us through our struggles. It means that even though times may get rough, we’re not falling back into the sins He’s delivered us from.
Are you doing or are you just hearing, because He does expect us to become doers after hearing Him.
