Many Christians say their faith is a matter of their heart. But the Bible calls us to put our faith into action. If we listen to the Word, but don’t act on it, we deceive ourselves.
The Bible is meant to change our lives.
As we discover new aspects of the faith, or when some aspect of the Bible stands out to you, we need to act on it. We need to apply it to our lives.
We are meant to change and grow as disciples of Jesus Christ.
If we only listen to the Word, we deceive ourselves.
Ezekiel 33:31. They come to you as the people come, and they sit before you as my people, and they hear your words, but don’t do them; for with their mouth they show much love, but their heart goes after their gain.
Psalm 119:105. Your word is a lamp to my feet, and a light for my path.
Sirach 50:29. For if he do them, he shall be strong to all things: For the light of the Lord is his guide.
James 1:22. Be ye doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. (KJV translation)
