A YEAR IN PRAYER    "Using God's Word to pray"

Do you only know of Christ but don’t know Him as Lord and Savior?

Haven’t you had enough theory on God’s word by now? Well, it’s practice time now!

Have you seen the light, but yet choose to live in darkness; have you heard the truth but continue to believe in a lie?

 

DAY # 253

TODAY’S REQUEST:

TO BE DOERS OF THE WORD, AND NOT HEARERS ONLY.

James 1: 21-25 Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls. 22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23 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; 24 for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. 25 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.
Ephesians 4:1 I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called,
Galatians 5:25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

 

HOW DO THE SCRIPTURES TELL US TO EXPRESS THIS REQUEST?

DOING MORE WALKING THAN TALKING

James 2: 14 -26 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, "Depart in peace, be warmed and filled," but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? 17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. 18 But someone will say, "You have faith, and I have works." Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. 19 You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe––and tremble! 20 But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead? 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar? 22 Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect? 23 And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, "Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness." And he was called the friend of God. 24 You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only. 25 Likewise, was not Rahab the harlot also justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out another way? 26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
Colossians 1:10 that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God;
Colossians 2:6 As you have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him,
1 John 1:6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.
1 John 2:6 He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.
