What We Think We Know
Is knowing about anything sufficient enough to make changes in your life ? To say you know about something but don’t apply it in your life will that be of any benefit to you ?
Let us think about and ponder this truth as found in James 1: 22- 27 “ Be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 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; for he observes himself, goes away, and forgets what kind of man he was. 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. If anyone among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is useless. Pure and undefiled religion before God the Father is this; To visit orphans and widow’s in their trouble and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.”
Having knowledge, in any area of your life, just for the sake of knowledge, is USELESS, unless you apply it. Its the application of knowledge that gets things done. It’s the doing that matters, its not just the knowing about it.
We can say a lot of things about anything but do you(We,I) Walk the Talk ? Do we mean what we say or think ? Do we practice what we preach ? Do we judge others, criticize, make excuses, complain, or gossip ? Do we lie only to others or do we lie and deceive ourselves ?
We can know physically that eating all the right foods, getting exercise, reducing our stress levels, getting more sleep are beneficial to us.
We can know that arguing, conflicts, jealousies, resentment, fear, doubts, worry are harmful to our emotional, mental well being.
We can know that showing up to work on time, being productive and doing our jobs is how we earn our living.
We can know how to be physically fit, emotionally fit, mentally fit. and how to keep our jobs but do we know how to be spiritually fit ? Some do, many don’t.
Understand that we can only get spiritual knowledge by someone teaching it to us. You(we,I) can know nothing until someone teaches it to us. Reading it, hearing it, seeing it, or through experiencing and doing it. God is the source of all knowledge and widsom in this world and is found in His word.
If we know that GOD IS LOVE - GOD IS LIFE - GOD IS LIGHT and GOD IS SPIRIT then why are we not reading it, hearing it, seeing it, and experiencing it ! (This is all found in the epistle of 1 John containing 5 Chapters)
My friends there is only one way to obtain that knowledge and it is found in the greatest book ever written and you know what that book is:The HOLY BIBLE !!!! Inspired all by God for us so that we can come into the knowledge and truth of His word.
Start today and change your life - Let the words of God speak to You and be filled with a peace and joy beyond measure.
