WORD WITHOUT ACTION
Free to Share
There is no doubt that the Word of God is being presented throughout our Country. It is not an issue of whether or not we are hearing the Word, but rather, what we are doing with the Word. I know there is a concern whether the presented Word is actually God’s Word or is simply man’s interpretation. If we are truthful, we will readily admit it is a mixture of both. It would take a spiritual Sherlock Holmes to discern what is Divine and what is human. Even when a distinction is made, there is an astonishing observation that the human interpretation has more followers than the Divine Word! It is easy to follow human advice and, for some reason, very difficult to follow Divine direction. One must readily be available to the Gift of the Holy Spirit known as “Discerning of Spirits.” False teaching is sprinkled with Truth, but undermined with human ingredients. When we look at the diversity of teaching today, we shake our heads with bewilderment at how divided the Church has become.
The Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:-7:) is the longest teaching of Jesus which we have recorded. If we would dedicate ourselves to understanding what He taught on that mountain side, we would be prepared for the trials of life. At the end of His message, He challenged them to do something with what they had heard. For those who would build their lives around these Truths, whatever the situations in life would bring, they would be able to weather the storm. If, on the other hand, they just listened to the Word and did nothing with it, they would experience failures.
Problems will come upon Believers and non-believers. No one is immune to the trials in life. The difference is that those who live their lives based on the Word of God will not only survive, but will build their lives on a solid foundation. There are many Christians that have heard the Word taught, but have not turned these Truths into actions. As a result of not responding to these Biblical Truths, their lives have been filled with inconsistencies. So many Christians experience setbacks because they have neglected the Word of God. When they fail in their spiritual walk, they blame God or question His Word. What they need to do is to stand in front of the mirror and accept the responsibility for their own lack of action.
I tried to start my leaf blower yesterday and, after ten minutes of pulling the starter rope, I gave up and sat down to try and figure out what I was doing wrong. What I found out was that I had flooded it; I had too much fuel in the carburetor. It can be just like that in our Christian walk. We can flood ourselves with the Word, but too much Word without action can limit our ability to function. We love to hear the Word, but if we are not willing to experience the Word, our lives will be limited to feelings instead of Faith. If we do not put works with our Faith, our faith will fade away.
