Are you a DOER?
James 1:22 says “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.”
Recently I have been reading a book called Love Does by Bob Goff every night before bed (part of my no phone rule at 8:30pm). Each chapter is just 3 pages or so of a story that leads back to how love DOES. It’s always in action. It got me thinking at how often we are content with just saying things rather than following through with an action.
Jesus summed up our purpose in 2 primary commandments—“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and love your neighbor as yourself.”-Luke 10:27. Love. Yet how many of us are obedient in that? How many of us DO what the Word says? Obedience is not writing scripture on plaques and framing them in our home. Obedience is not being able to memorize scripture. Obedience being a DOER of the Word.
Love isn’t easy. It’s so hard sometimes. People are messy. It requires a constant refocusing and surrender of self. It requires Jesus and His Holy Spirit. Can you think of one person on this Thursday to extend love to? Beyond just words—I am talking about an action. Without names, tell me how you will bring love to life with an action toward this person below.
