James 1:22Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.
This one's short and sweet. It's so easy to listen to God's word, and even to spend time reading it. It's easy, and we can fall into the trap of feeling like we've met God's expectations by reading or listening to his word, so we can go off and do what we want. No, the gospel and God's word needs to affect every part of our lives. We need to not only listen, but obey.
Don't deceive yourself! Don't just hear God's word, act on it. Do it.
