We must allow the Word of God to confront us, to disturb our security, to undermine our complacency and to overthrow our patterns of thought and behavior. John Stott
James 1:21-22 Therefore, ridding yourselves of all moral filth and evil excess, humbly receive the implanted word, which is able to save you. (22) But be doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
How many of you read your Bible daily? I hope a fair amount. I know most at least read a devotional or attend church regularly. Now, I don’t have to extol the value of reading your Bible. But, I must mention that is additon to reading your Bible you must apply to your life. It is important to listen and read what God’s Word says, but it is much more important to obey it and to do what it says. You see I think we can measure the effectiveness of our Bible study by the effect it has on our behavior, actions, and attitudes. Today as you read or hear any Bible teaching stop and think: how can I live this truth out? How does this affect my walk? So, do you seek to put into action what you have studied? I hope so.
