Looking into God’s Word

It’s like looking into a mirror. The question is what do you do once you look into that mirror.

But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.

James 1.22-25

You can look and delude yourself … thinking you know better so you just ignore it. It’s just not good enough.

You can look and forget what you just saw … thinking so flippantly of the Word you don’t even care enough to remember it. It’s just not important.

You can look and receive and react … actually hearing the Word and living the Word. And by doing this, reflecting the love and life of Christ.

One of those three honors God. What are you doing when you look into the Word? Be a doer, not a hearer only.

About Todd K Estes

In this journey called Life, it gets a bit muddy - But Jesus sees beyond the mud and sees the person He created, the person He loves, and the person He is still working on. I am one of those persons - and so are you. I am a sold-out follower of Jesus, husband way out of my league, father to a great son, part of the family of God, and pastor of a great church family - Evergreen Baptist in Appomattox.
