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 a man who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it—he will be blessed in what he does. (James 1:22-25 NIV)
Prayer: LORD, I see people get excited about something they see, hear, or read—but it ends there. It never becomes a part of their lives, thoughts, or actions. Help me allow and enable Your Word to be alive, live in me, and change my actions as well as my mind. I want my life to be an expression of You and Your ways, character, and integrity. Do whatever You need to do to make it so. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
