Hearing the Word must be followed by obedience. With the Word of God implanted in our hearts, it must sprout, grow, and bear fruit. Putting the seed in the ground is not the goal. Bearing fruit from the planted seed is the goal. In the same way, listening to the Word is not the goal. Obeying what we have heard is the goal. We are deceiving ourselves if we think listening is enough for righteousness.
This series, based on the book of James, explores how to be a doer of the Word. There are many in the Lord’s body who want to tell others what to do or always have a great idea. But who are the people who are listening? Who are the people that are doing? James is going to note this problem to help us construct a Godly life!
