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.
