James 1:22But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
Act on the WORD
I could sit in church continuously, listen to sermons, read the Word, and not have it make a difference. That is not God’s desire. I am to act on what I hear from God’s Word, and from what I read. It is not just a book to read, not just a history book, not just a book of encouragement, not just a self-help book.
The Bible is the Word of God, telling us of Himself, and His Love, drawing us to Himself, showing us His Love through the Sacrifice of His Son, Jesus, the Christ.
The Bible is a Book, showing us the way of Life, showing us how to have Life, and telling us that His Holy Spirit will guide us through Life, once we have accepted Jesus as Saviour of our life.
The Bible also has the Truth written in it of what will happen to any who do not believe it, and who do not have a relationship with Jesus Christ as Saviour. There is a terrible eternity for those who choose not to accept the free gift of Salvation that God has offered.
That free gift is received by calling out to the Pure and Holy God, our Creator, admitting we are sinners. Ask Him then to forgive us of all sin, in Jesus Name, and by the Sacrifice of Jesus on the cross. Tell Jesus we surrender to Him, and ask Him to guide us by His Spirit in all things.
Thank Jesus for what He has done right then in your life.
After that–you are a new person in Christ. He will guide you.
In all things, pay attention to the Holy Spirit Who is now within you, as He will guide you, and lead you the right way.
Read the Bible, start in the New Testament. Attend a Bible believing/ preaching church. God’s Blessings.
