In James 1:22, James writes these words “But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves” (NASB). As beloved believers in Christ we are commanded to be doers of the Word. This is not a trivial recommendation or suggestion…this is a practical, daily, lifelong expectation that God has of us.
How we do this is unique to each of us and to each of our lives. God has planted each of us in a unique setting, at a unique time, around a unique set of people. Our obedience to God by living a life for Christ that is putting to work – a.k.a. “doer-ing”, the Word of God, is something that each of us are uniquely qualified to do, in our own uniquely customized life situation.
In Hebrews 12:1, Paul writes those familiar words…”Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.” Our presenting of ourselves, in all regards, in our “doer-ing” of the Word of God each day, is one of the ways we fulfill that spiritual service of worship.
Let us worship God with all our heart, all our soul, all our mind, and all our strength today!
