40 DITW [Days in the Word] – Day # 24

40 DITW – DAY # 24

 PARAPHRASE IT!   James 1:22-25 [NIV] Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. 23 Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror 24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. 25 But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.

 MY PARAPHRASE:  Anyone can read instructions try following them. If you don’t follow the instructions something will end up missing.  But when you do – oh glory! – You’re going to love the results.

APPLYING THESE VERSES TO MY LIFE:  Time to take God’s word, as God’s word – and be obedient to it!

 PRAYER

Father,

James tells us that obedience equals blessing. Help me get there. Enough with reading the Bible – I want the Bible to read me – and for the Holy Spirit to change me accordingly.
