Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations [help the people to learn of Me, believe in Me, and obey My words], baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always [remaining with you perpetually–regardless of circumstance, and on every occasion], even to the end of the age.” MATTHEW 28:19‭-‬20 AMP

Doers of the Word…

We are continuing with the theme of the year being “Healthy plans bears good fruit”. We have seen that we must be healthy plans (good and healthy Christians) in order to bear (good and healthy) spiritual fruit. We saw in Gal 5: 22-23 what the fruit that we are to bear looks like. Bearing spiritual fruit is an action. It requires us to do something…

Let’s look at what the Bible has to say on this topic:

But prove yourselves doers of the word [actively and continually obeying God’s precepts], and not merely listeners [who hear the word but fail to internalize its meaning], deluding yourselves [by unsound reasoning contrary to the truth]. – James 1:22 AMP

The following three point can be taken from this verse:
• We should be doers of the word.
• We should not merely hear the word but take action.
• Failing to do what you have heard is merely deluding or fooling yourself!

So, we could surmise by saying that hearing the word of God is very good. That is how we get to know God`s heart and His will. But this is not enough. We must take the next step! We must do what the Word says. We must start loving people. We must live a life filled with joy. We must make peace and live in peace with others. We must practice longsuffering… We must be kind to others. We must do good to others. We must be faithful to God and to those we live and work with. We must be gentle in our approach to others. We must practice self-control. All this fruit will require that we take an action. You will have to hear these words, but not only hear them, you will have to take action and put them into practice. Failing to do so you will only fool yourself in believing that doing nothing is enough…

So, my challenge to you today are to start putting the Word of God into practice and start living the Word of God. Put what you have heard into action…

Let`s pray:

Father we want to thank you for having hear Your Word. We know that this a privilege that we have received from You. But we know that hearing the Word is not enough. We know that we must become doers of Your Word. Father help us to become doers. Send people and situations over our path that we can become doers of the Word. We also ray that by doing the Word we will glorify Your Name and bring glory and honor to Your Name. Fill our hearts with love that will turn into action. We pray this in the mighty name of Jesus! Amen.

Go out and become a doer or the Word and bear much fruit…
