Gene’s Daily Scriptural Postings

But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.


James 1:22

Daily Reading Plan




James 1:1-27Bible in a Year:Judges 5:1-31  ;  Galatians 2:1-21


James shows us the importance of putting our faith into action. It is easy to listen to sermons, read the Bible, and talk about our beliefs, but James emphasizes that it is not enough to hear the word of God, we must also live it out.

But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. James 1:22

Imagine going to a gym, listening to a trainer explain the best workout routines, and then just sitting there, never lifting a weight or breaking a sweat. You might know a lot about exercise, but you will only see results if you do it. 

The same principle applies to our spiritual lives. We can gain all the knowledge about the word of God, but without applying it, it will not transform us or our circumstances.

Being a doer means applying the Bible in our daily lives. It is about showing others love, kindness, and compassion, especially when challenging and forgiving those who wronged us, serving those in need, and living with integrity and humility. 

When we act on the word of God, we reflect His love on the world around us, and our faith becomes visible and impactful.

If we hear the word of God and think that only listening is enough, we are fooling ourselves. True faith requires action. It is not about earning the love of God or salvation, that is given freely by grace, but about responding to that love in tangible ways. Our actions are evidence of a living, active faith.

Start with small, intentional steps to be a doer of the word. Look for opportunities each day to practice what you have learned from the Bible. It could be as simple as lending a helping hand to a neighbor, speaking words of encouragement, or choosing patience in a stressful situation. Over time, these small acts of obedience will build a habit of living out your faith authentically.

You need to move beyond listening and engage actively with the Word of God. Be a doer, allowing your faith to shine through your actions. In doing so, you will honor God and make a positive impact on the world around you.

Do you need Prayer? We are here to pray with you.

Heavenly Father, I praise You for the instructions that Your Word gives to each of us. I must be a doer of the Word and not a hearer only so I will not be deceived. The enemy goes around to snare any of us, but we must stay on guard and do Your Word and the work You have called us to do. Thank You, Father God. In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.

You Need To Move Beyond Listening And Engage Actively With The Word Of God. Be A Doer, Allowing Your Faith To Shine Through Your Actions. In Doing So, You Will Honor God And Make A Positive Impact On The World Around You.
