Putting into practice
Putting into practice
Do you want to be wise and not foolish? Do you want to be called either a brother or sister of Jesus Christ? Do you want the peace of God in your life? The answer is to put into practice the Word of God. If you are putting into practice the Word of God, Jesus calls you a brother or sister. Jesus distinguished between his own bloodline and HIS Spiritual brothers and sisters.
Someone told him, “Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to see you.”
He replied, “My mother and brothers are those who hear God’s word and put it into practice.” Luke 8:20-21
“Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say? I will show you what he is like who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice. He is like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built. But the one who hears my words and does not put them into practice is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete.” Luke 6:46-49
Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me-put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. Philippians 4:9
“As for you, son of man, your countrymen are talking together about you by the walls and at the doors of the houses, saying to each other, ‘Come and hear the message that has come from the LORD.’ My people come to you, as they usually do, and sit before you to listen to your words, but they do not put them into practice. With their mouths they express devotion, but their hearts are greedy for unjust gain. Indeed, to them you are nothing more than one who sings love songs with a beautiful voice and plays an instrument well, for they hear your words but do not put them into practice.” Ezekiel 33: 30-32
Following Christ is putting into action the Word of God. Go love your spouse, children, parents, boss, co-worker, vendor, minister, teacher, and friend as Christ loved you. Put into practice love today. Put into practice forgiveness today. Put into practice truth today. Put into practice freedom in Christ today. Put into practice the peace of God today.
