Winning Wisdom: Doer of The Word


Topic: Doer of The Word [Thursday, 28 September, 2017]

For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:  For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. James 1:23‭-‬24 ‬

It is well settled that the hearing of the word is vital to us. For by it that our faith is built (Romans 10:17). It is by the Word that our minds get transformed (Romans 12:2). However, the Word could remain head knowledge to us if we don’t do it or act upon it. It’s like someone transfers a million dollars into your account. If you don’t go to the bank and access it, it will be as good as you not having it at all.

Doing the Word is very vital for every believer. The Word of God reveals the nature of God to us, Whose nature we are. After knowing the nature of God, which is our very own nature, through the study of the Word, we must then live the life that the Word has shown to us, and that is doing and acting as the Word says. Through continuous practice of the Word of God, we begin to look more and more like God, because we manifest His characters that we've seen and know through the Word.

But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. (2 Corinthians 3:18). For if any be a hearer (or reader) of the Word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: for he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. (James 1:23‭-‬25). By studying and continuing in the Word of God, we are changed. James says when we do the Word, we’ll be blessed in our deeds. Do the Word you’ve learnt and you’ll indeed be blessed in your deeds.

Keep winning daily.

Prayer:

Dear Father, thank You for Your Word that changes me. Help me to continually do Your Word, that I may manifest You more, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
