BE A DOER OF THE WORD (by benaiah juma).
Jas 1:22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
Jas 1:23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
Jas 1:24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.
Jas 1:25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
The word of God tells us that only doers of the word will be justified. When the lord Jesus Christ comes to reward his children and judge the world. The question will not be, who can quote the scriptures from genesis to revelation, who can preach powerful sermons, who is wise, who is physically challenged or who is physically able, the question will not be who belongs to a certain country, but who is a doer of the word.
The word of God tells us that you shall know them by their fruits. People are good at listening and hearing the word of God but are not good in obeying the same message received. God is looking for people who can be doers of the word of God. We are supposed to study the word of God and put it into action. Our love towards God is manifested and showed by doing and obeying the scriptures.
The way we live our lives should reflect and should be based on the word of God. When you are a doer of the word of God your faith in the lord Jesus Christ is strengthened and it will be very difficult for the enemy to derail you from your faith. Our faith in Christ Jesus is perfected when we do and obey the word of God. A person who is a doer of the word of God his or her faith is strengthened. Jesus told us that why do we call him lord if we do not do what he tells us. Your deeds indicate the master that you love and honor. If your deeds represent the wicked one, you belong to him even though you deny him and proclaim Jesus Christ.
One of the ways that you can use to discern a doer of the word of God is if their deeds are reflecting the word of God. Giving lip service and living contrary to the word of God is no good. Jesus Christ said if you love me you will keep my commandments. If you see a person proclaiming the lord Jesus Christ and living and walking in sin they are not saved and the truth is not in them they are not a doer of the word. A person who is not a doer of the word of God can easily be swept away by the enemy and the pressure of the world. Check out peoples lives and their fruits and you shall know the doers of the word of God. By their fruits you shall know them.
Mat 7:24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
Mat 7:25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
Mat 7:26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
Mat 7:27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
Hearing the word of God only and not acting upon it is vain. God gives us his word so that it can become part and parcel of our lives and lead us to the narrow path of salvation. If you hear the word of God and it does not work out in the way you leave, you have rejected it. Once you hear the word of God it is supposed to change your life. If you were a criminal you are to stop stealing or dealing with others fraudulently, if you loved cursing others you are supposed to stop cursing others, if you were in any kind of sin you are supposed to forsake the sin and renounce it. People who are living in obedience to the word, and they bear good fruits for Jesus Christ are the doers of the word. Be a doer of the word, for only doers of the word of God will be justified.
