FOCAL TEXT: James 1 vs 25►► “But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.~》NKJV》______________________________________
BLISSFUL greetings, Cherished one. Our focal text is a statement of fact that whoever looks or gazes at the perfect law of liberty (the word of His grace), continues in it as a doer of the word will be blessed in what he does. The word “look” here infers a careful look or inspecting curiously. *Thus, you pay rapt attention to look at it. It is an intentional look, not a casual one.* He continues in it by remembering what he listens to and put it to work.
In other words, hearing the word only is not enough to produce the needed results. Therefore, ask yourself which part of God’s word have you heard but haven’t put to practise. Beloved, apply what you hear into action. That’s the law of faith. *Faith acts on the word of God, not just hear it. A doer of the word is one who performs the word. In other words, he puts the word into practice; a “word-practitioner.”* Such folks don’t “wait” for God to do the word for them.
They take initiative to engage what they listen into practice. For instance, if the word says God answers prayer, they would pray and experience that part of God. *It is called the perfect law of liberty because it contains truths that set you free from all forms of bondage.* Yes, there is freedom in listening and doing the word of God. Keep on listening and doing the word of God and enjoy the blessings thereof. The rich grace of our Lord Jesus Christ abounds towards you always.
Father, I thank You for the grace to listen and do Your Word. I refuse to be a forgetful hearer. I enjoy the blessedness of listening and doing Your Word in Jesus Blessed Name. Amen!
Thank God for the strength to listen and do the word.
You are not safe until you are saved. Believe in Jesus Christ Now, if you haven’t.
