Apply God’s Word

James 1 22.jpg

 

Verse of the Day: James 1:22

Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.

 

If you are just listening to or reading the Word of God but not applying it to your life and expecting your life to change you’re fooling yourself.  That would be like reading about a diet then eating junk food and expecting to lose weight.  You have to apply it to your life, you have to change your habits and it has to be a way of life not just a Sunday event.

10 Days of Thanksgiving – Day 6: Thankful for Spiritual Freedom

Psalm 100 4.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 100:4

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

 

I am thankful for the freedom to be able to enter into the house of the Lord to praise and worship my Lord and Savior.  Yes, we have a constitutionally protected right to religious freedom and that’s great, but I’m talking about the spiritual freedom we received when Jesus died on the cross and paid the price for our sins.  I’m talking about abiding in God’s truth which has set us free from a life of sin and death.  Because of God’s love and mercy, we can have a relationship with Him, we can come into his presence to praise and worship Him and for that I am thankful.

Blessed

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 84:4

Blessed are those who dwell in your house; they are ever praising you.

 

What a blessing it is to be in the house of the Lord enjoying the presence of the living God. It is a privilege and an honor to offer our praises to our Lord and Savior.
