Beyond Listening — part 2

October 13, 2018

Do not merely listen to the Word.
Do what it says.
James 1:22

Kim and Jim Thomas are real life friends and colleagues. Our paths crossed repeatedly when we were in youth ministry at the national level; lotta good stories from those days.

One of their songs says  —

I will not a hearer only be

I will be a doer then they’ll see

— but how can that happen?

Here’s how: the next line of their song is —

I’m walking in His shoes

— By both the grace of God and our own feeble efforts, today and beyond may you and I not “hearer(s) only be.”

Let’s be “doer(s)” of the Word as well.

Why? So that “then they’ll see” and even experience the difference Christ is making in our daily lives, and can make in theirs, too.

How? By “walking in His shoes.”

So what’s your first step gonna be?

I’d love to hear from you as always, and I hope to see you back here tomorrow.
