Do not merely listen to the word,
and so deceive yourselves.
Do what it says.
– James 1:22 (NIV)
It is probably safe to say that most of want to do what god expects of us. We can admit that we are at least willing to try. I think that makes some reasonable sense based on my own experience.
We don’t always do right.
We don’t necessarily do any better.
God expects us to do better. He 3expects us to do something with His Word. He doesn’t expect us to just take it in and let it sit within us. He wants us working on what He has for us to do. Otherwise, we are headed down the right right track.
Do what God says and you’ll meet His expectation for your obedience every single time.
