Doers of the Word
Read: ROMANS 2:12-24
Nobody likes a hypocrite. To say or do one thing and then turn around and say or do the opposite is a quick way to upset people. Unfortunately, this type of behavior seems quite prevalent in the world. This should not be the case though, especially for followers of Jesus Christ.
God sent Jesus to this earth to set us free from sin by living a sinless and holy life, so that we might do the same. He constantly taught his disciples the truth of God’s word and how they were to please God with their lives.
Similarly, the apostle Paul stressed to the church in Rome that they must not merely be hearers of God’s law, but instead they should be obedient doers. This meant having an authentic relationship with God that put their faith into action.
How are we living out our faith in our day-to-day lives to be like Jesus?
Father, teach us to be faithful and obedient to your word in everything we say, do, and think. AMEN.
