Hear And Do
“Now, O Israel, listen to the statutes and the judgments which I teach you to observe, that you may live, and go in and possess the land which the Lord God of your fathers is giving you.” (Deuteronomy 4:1, NKJV)
Listen and observe. Hear and do. There is an important point here.
It is not enough for us to simply hear the word of God. We must then do it.
But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. (James 1:22-24)
That is how the Lord desires to respond to Him and His word.
Holy Father God, help us to be doers of Your word as You have instructed us. We want to honor You in this so that You will receive all the praise, glory, and honor. In Jesus name, Amen.
