DOER’S of the WORD!!!
Do you ever remember having your parents tell you to DO something but you DID NOT do what they asked you to do???
What happened as a result? Were there consequences or did they just let it slide? Most often parents will DO something if they kids DO NOT! And it probably will not be fun for either of them!
What about God’s Word, are you a DOER or just a HEARER??? In James 1:22 the AMPLIFIED says:
But be DOERS of the Word [OBEY the message], and not merely listeners to it, betraying yourselves [into deception by reasoning contrary to the Truth].
Faith is believing with the heart and acting on what we believe. Anytime faith is required action is necessary! To be DOER of the Word we must act in FAITH!
Exercise is a principle of life that we understand. If you don’t use it, you will lose it. If you build up your muscles but quit using them they will “atrophy” and lose their “temper” their strength and become smaller. You’ve got to exercise yourself unto godliness, use it, keep spiritually fit and let your spiritual muscles grow.
Keep your “spiritual body” in good health. Keep conditioning yourself. How do we do this? By spiritual exercise! So EXERCISE and DO the Word. Stand in FAITH & see how things CHANGE!
