Knowing and Doing

Knowing about healthy choices doesn’t equal me actually making those choices and therefore reaping the full benefit of a healthy body.

And knowing about life in Jesus Christ doesn’t equal me actually making the choice to obey His Word and therefore reaping the benefit of a healthy soul.

“But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers …” James 1:22 (NASB)...

As James reminds us, I must be more than a hearer, reader, discusser, watcher. I must be a doer.

God wants more than for us to have a simple awareness of His instructions. He wants us to obey Him and to do what He says — both for His glory and our good. His instructions may not always be easy but this much is clear: He wants us to hear His Word and just do it.

ARE to think maybe, not because of me, not because I deserve an ounce of recognition, and not because I've accomplished anything worthy of mention. But, because God loves to take rag tag people from broken backgrounds and surprise the daylights out of them with possibilities.

God invites us today to live a great story with Him.
