Doers of the Word

But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. – James 1:22

A take-away from reading God’s Word as described in the post “Useful Faith” is that faith is not the only quality we need. The Israelites demonstrated that they had no advantage in religious ceremonial observances. What they needed was to internalize the qualities taught in God’s Word so that their heart and mind would be aligned for action.

Like in the song Confidence by Sanctus Real, let us seek to have faith like Daniel in the lion’s den, hope like Moses in the wilderness, and a heart like David so the Lord will be our defense to face the battles of life with confidence.
