" We Have good Hearing "

James 1:22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only , deceiving your own selves.

This scripture is begging to be obeyed ! Why ? It could be one of the most dangerous scriptures in
the bible ! What do we mean by dangerous ? The presentation of it is short, sweet, and to the point.
It resonates like a General giving a command , and our human nature doesn't quite fancy to someone giving us orders. Right off the cuff it gives us reason to get offended as if we never done anything wrong. So , what makes it so dangerous ? Some of the answer lies in our reasoning. We have a tendency to think that just because we went to church Sunday and heard the sermon, we've done our part. We can even get together for lunch with friends afterward and discuss how good it was , and then go back to business as usual. This is where the deception slips in. If we are not applying what was taught , [ providing it was the word of God ] then in some cases , we can be worse than we were.
Heres something to remember ! The word given us in that moment , is only good for that moment. Christ said, give us this day our daily bread. Tommorow we will need fresh bread to sustain us, therefore , yesterdays word may not be for the handling of todays problems.

 God bless you on your journey!
