James 1:22-25

THE OUTWARD LIFE OF A STEWARD
Responding to the Word

But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves.

The truth is, for most of us, we do not need to know more, we need to obey more of what we already know. James 1:22-25 says it this way, But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in a mirror; for once he has looked at himself and gone away, he has immediately forgotten what kind of person he was. But one who looks intently at the perfect law, the law of liberty, and abides by it, not having become a forgetful hearer but an effectual doer, this man will be blessed in what he does (NASB1995). Don’t just think about it. Do it!
