Hearing God’s Voice – Hearers Should Be Doers
Anybody can hear.
- James 1:22-25 (NLT) – But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves. 23For if you listen to the word and don’t obey, it is like glancing at your face in a mirror. 24 You see yourself, walk away, and forget what you look like. 25 But if you look carefully into the perfect law that sets you free, and if you do what it says and don’t forget what you heard, then God will bless you for doing it.
But how many are doing?
- Matthew 22:14 (NLT) – “For many are called (invited), but few are chosen (accept).”
- But you have to accept the invitation and this is the invitation – Luke 9:23-24 (NLT) – Then he (Jesus) said to the crowd, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must give up your own way, take up your cross daily, and follow me.24 If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it.
Many have problems because they are hearers only.
- 1 Peter 4:15 (NLT) – If you suffer, however, it must not be for murder, stealing, making trouble, or prying into other people’s affairs.
Doers are really believing Believers!
- James 2:17-20 (NLT) – So you see, faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless. 18 Now someone may argue, “Some people have faith; others have good deeds.” But I say, “How can you show me your faith if you don’t have good deeds? I will show you my faith by my good deeds.” 19 You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God. Good for you! Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror.20 How foolish! Can’t you see that faith without good deeds is useless?
Doers have testimonies.
- Three weapons given us to defeat the enemy of our souls – Revelation 12:11 (NLT) – And they have defeated him by the blood of the Lamb and by their testimony. And they did not love their lives so much that they were afraid to die.
- But it’s the testimony we have the power to control.
- Isn’t it time to get your own testimonies!
