Taking It to the Streets

“Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.”—James 1:22.

We do the right thing when we go to church on Sunday and hear the word of God preached in worship and taught in the classroom. That’s what God wants us to do.

However, we haven’t fulfilled our duty if we merely listen to the word. God expects more from us than that. If we do no more than listen to the word, we are deceiving ourselves into thinking that we have accomplished all that we need to do.

We haven’t completed our assignment until we actually do what the Bible says. As one preacher put it, we need to take the sermon from the pew to the streets.

Challenge accepted!
