The scripture says Christians should be doers of the Word, and not hearers only. Are you a doer of the Word?
What does it profit a man if he hears the Word and do not apply it to his life? Nought.
How can you be a true follower of God, if you do not do what His Word says? “By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?” No. (Matthew 7:16 NIV).
“My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires. Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you. Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror” (James 1:19-23).
Fellow believers, the Word of God is not superfluous. It comes to us in the right dosage, and we should apply it to our lives. If we don’t. Luke 12:47 tells us what will happen: “That servant who knows his master’s will and does not get ready or does not do what his master wants will be beaten with many blows.”
