Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it—he will be blessed in what he does.
-James 1:22, 25
I love these verses! James is telling us to actually do what we read! Wow, so when I read a verse in the Bible, I need to really meditate on it and apply it to my life. David Nasser states that "good Bible study contains three parts: observation (What does the passage say?), interpretation (What does it mean?), and application (What does it mean to me?). Of these, application is the hardest because it requires change."
Apply Jesus' Words to your life today. You never know what kind of impact you may have.
