BE A DOER
James 1:22: But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
In this passage, James exhorts us to take action. We are not to just listen to God's words and do nothing. This does nothing to advance the kingdom. We are to be doers of the word. To put God's words into action. To make a difference. If we hear only, we are simply "pew sitters". We are of no more consequence than the paint on the walls. Unless we do what the word says, we are useless to the kingdom. “Faith without works is dead”, according to James 2:17. That doesn’t mean works saves you, it merely means if you are saved, you want to help others whenever possible. You want others to get into the kingdom. Jesus said in Matt. 7:19: Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. So, let’s be a doer.
