“Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. DO what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.” —James 1:22-25 LISTENING & DOING The effectiveness of your time spent with Jesus by reading the Bible and praying will manifest itself by the way you BEHAVE. Yes, it’s true we are saved by faith, BUT the proof of our faith is shown by our actions. Are you living the life He’s called you to? Does the way you interact with the people in your life--the people HE has placed in your life--reflect your faith in Him?
How can you know what He has planned for you if you don't spend time studying His word?
