To Do-ers List
22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; 24 for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. 25 But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.” James 1:22-25
Welcome to To Do-ers List Bible study series. I pray you find this short series beneficial and life changing.
I am a list maker. Most days I start my morning by making my to-do list. My to-do list keeps me focused and helps me make valuable use of my time. God is a doer as well; creating is one of His specialties. We can be listeners, hearers, watchers, thinkers, and gatherers of His word, but there must be a point in time when we become doers.
It is important to note while other Greek words for hearing translate as “understanding, perceiving, and obeying,” the word used for hearer in the verse above means simply one who passively hears. No action. No engagement. Classic in one ear and out the other. But, God calls us to be doers of His word.
The Bible lists many benefits of being do-ers of the Word.
- Correction, instruction, and training (2 Timothy 3:16)
- Wisdom (Psalm 19:7)
- Freedom (John 8:32)
- Life (John 6:68)
- Strength (Joel 2:11)
- Greater faith (Romans 10:17)
- Comfort, revival, and peace (Psalm 119:7-16)
- Plus many, many other benefits.
God has not given us His Word for information, but for transformation. Therefore, the mission of this Bible study series is to change hearers into doers. Each day we will focus on one command from Scripture and apply it to our lives. Every nook and cranny, every chore, errand, and encounter of our lives will be covered in the Word of God.
Starting July 27th, check our website every morning at 5:00 a.m. to get your To Do-ers List for the day.
