In His Word Wednesday: James 1:22

James 1:22
But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourself.

This verse is self explanatory. We cannot just sit, hear or read God's word. We have to act on those words. Our culture tends to consider people "spiritual" merely if they have an interest in spiritual things. That is not the biblical perspective. Only those who hear God's voice and obey it are spiritual.

I love when different verses tie together, so let me ask you this...
Do you know what Jesus says on this subject? Look at Matthew 7:26. Jesus says, "But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand." Don't be the foolish man. Spend every opportunity learning with other believers at your church and meditating in God's word. Then live your life as Jesus commands.
