Are You A Hearer Or A Doer Of The Word Of God?


TEXT: Romans 2:13-“For not the hearers of the Law are just before God, but the doers of the Law shall be justified.”

INTRODUCTION

The problem many Christians have, is not with the hearing of the word of God, but with the doing of it. We hear the word constantly, but sadly, honour it more in breach than in obedience. Yet, it is the doing of the word that God desires of us. Unless we act on the word, it’s hearing and reading will become of no moment. As a hearer of the word only, you short-change yourself in many ways.

          •        SELF-DECEIT:

The Bible says in James 1:22-27, that to hear and not do God’s word amounts to self-deceit. In other words, we merely deceive ourselves and not God, because God knows all things and will judge us according to the truth that He knows, rather than what we pretend to be.

          •        ONLY DOERS ARE BLESSED

If you only hear but do not obey God’s word, you deny yourself of blessings, because according to Luke 11:28, only doers rather than hearers are blessed.

          •        NO RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST

Jesus Christ stated in Luke 8:21, that only those who hear and obey His words have relationship with Him. Therefore, no matter  your position in church or the level of your activities, you have no relationship with Christ if you are not a doer of His word.

          •        EXPOSED IN THE DAY OF ADVERSITY

In Mathew 7:24-27, Jesus likened a doer of His word to a wise man who built his house on a rock which withstands the pounding of the rain, and a mere hearer to a foolish man who built his house on sand, and was swept off at the earliest onset of rain. In other words, doers of God’s word will stand in the day of adversity, while mere hearers will be consumed.

CONCLUSION

Only doers of God’s word will make it to heaven. Mere hearers will not, because Jesus will deny them. As a child of God desirous of making heaven, please strive to obey the scriptures, for therein lies the truth of your salvation.

PRAYER POINTS:

          1.      Father, please forgive my unfaithfulness in the obedience of your word, and grant me the grace to obey you, henceforth.

          2.      Father, from now, let the hunger for your word overshadow every other hunger in me, in Jesus name.

          3.      Father, henceforth, let me find comfort only in obeying your word.

          4.      Father, destroy every garment of self-deceit that I am wearing, and put on me the garment of the truth of your word.

          5.      Father, from now, cause me to prefer the discipline of obedience to your word to the transient pleasures of sin and disobedience, in Jesus name, Amen!

Shalom!

Thank You Jesus.
