Obedience: The Hallmark
Like I said last week that Meditation is important and so effective.
But, I must say seriously…
All prayers, Bible study, meditation and the rest are not useful if the Word is not Obeyed.
From Joshua 1:8
This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but *thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according* to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
So, after meditation I said, the Grace & strength to do comes with Meditation.
See, the blessings of Bible study don’t come by Reading or Praying but by DOING, I repeat by DOING!!!
Faith comes by hearing & hearing by the Word of God.
But, Faith is worked on.
If you truly believe it, you will truly act on it.
Doing the word tells me that you believe the word.
Not just reading for ours and not doing what you read.
James 1:22 tells us that if we hear and don’t do, we are deceiving our selves.
So, a man who just reads & study & pray but doesn’t obey the Word deceives himself.
That means there is actually no difference between such man & one who had never read the Bible
I believe this is key and important. Faith is doing God’s word.
Because, faith without action is DEAD!!!
Show me your faith by your works and I will show you an Obedient man.
Do the Word!!! It’s the Hallmark & the Height of transformation.
God bless you & as we look into other topics & dig deeper next week.
