Hear and Do God’s Word

Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. James 1:22 (NIV)

In the devotionals this week we’ve been discussing spending time with God.  It’s important to spend time in prayer (communicating with God) and reading God’s Word (the Bible).  But as referenced in the verse above, we need to take the next step.  We need to put what we’ve read in the Bible into action.  Think about the devotionals you’ve read this week or the messages you’ve heard recently.  What do you need to do today based on what you read or heard?  Be a doer (and not just a hearer) of God’s Word.
