The Living and Transforming Word of God - Reaching Our Entire Being - Wednesday, August 23rd

Do not merely listen to the Word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the Word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. James 1:22-24

Therefore, prepare your minds for action, keep sober in spirit, fix your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. As obedient children, do not be conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your ignorance, but like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior; because it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy. 1 Peter 1:13-16

Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock. Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell—and great was its fall. Matthew 7:24-27

Today's thoughts from today's verses:

One of the greatest obstacles to realizing the kind of transformation that moves us from worldliness to godliness, is our academic approach to Scripture. Being scholarly is not necessarily the problem here, but rather, approaching the Bible and its truths as primarily matters for the mind. When we do this, and we do, we become adept at talking the talk, but not walking the walk. We convince ourselves that we are changed people simply because we have embraced new understandings while releasing old understandings and have aligned ourselves with others who have done the same. But the changes that God is committed to involve body, mind, and spirit in everyday practical living. 

Today's prayer response from today's thoughts:

Lord, I really do want to experience true and lasting change in my life. Minister your Word to every part of my being and help me to respond fully and completely. Deliver me from being involved with your Word merely on a knowledge level. I know when I let this happen, it short circuits your life transforming work in my life. I love you, worship you, and yield to you, Lord. Amen!
