James 1:21-24Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls. 22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; 24 for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. (NKJV)

My fellow Christian…are you doing as Jesus Christ Himself tells us, in this scripture below ??

John 8:31-32…  So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”  (ESV)

In verse 22 in the opening scripture, the Apostle James tells us… But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.”

How can you possibly be doers of the Word, if you don’t spend time IN the Word ??  Abiding in the Word means spending time reading your Bible (hopefully every day)…meditating over the scripture…and then applying the Word to your life…

You say you just don’t have time to read your Bible every day ??  I am here to tell you, that your life cannot possibly be focused on the Lord Jesus Christ, if you neglect being spiritually fed EVERY day !!  Why else would Jesus tell us this 2 times, in…

Matthew 4:4…(and…Luke 4:4…)   “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”  (ESV)

In the link in 1) below, you will find an app for reading the whole Bible in a year, that is now available in an “ALL audible” version…so you can listen to scripture and the commentary on the scripture as you drive to work, or do your daily chores…

No more excuses on NOT being spiritually fed every day !!  As you spend time in the Word, you will find out how God wants you to live your life…and by submitting to the leading of the Holy Spirit, you will be actively being conformed into the image of Christ, as the Apostle Paul tells will happen, in…

Romans 8:29-30…  For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. 30 And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified.  (ESV)

When Christ is first in your life…and you are walking in and by the full power of the Holy Spirit…the 9 fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23) will begin to grow in maturity…  [see 2) below for how “Walking in the Spirit (Galatians 5:16) is best accomplished]    You will be doing as Jesus commands us, in His first and most important Commandment, in…

Matthew 22:37…  And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the great and first commandment. (ESV)

When you are living a “Christ centered”, Spirit filled life…God will not only be free to bless you…He will bless you beyond mortal belief, because the Holy Spirit will guide and direct the maturing of His spiritual fruit within you…  And you, my friend…will finally be set free by knowing the truth, as Jesus tells us in John 8:31-32…above…  With God’s truth guiding your life…you will truly be set free from the evil ways of the world !!

Gracious God and heavenly Father…I pray those who have read this post with all the promises You make in Your inerrant Word, the Bible…will finally submit their lives to You, and Your “always perfect” way for them to live their lives…  I pray that all hearts, minds, and souls will seek Your perfect will, in Jesus’ most precious name, and for His sake…Amen…

Blessings in Christ,  bruce
