“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 1:23-24
When we accept Christ, our lives must be a reflection of who he is in us. Therefore, we ought not to hear or read the Word of God and not apply it to our lives.
Saul made it his mission to imprison all the believers in the synagogues in Damascus. However, he was saved and therefore became a believer. By right then, he was expected to be imprisoned as well but Saul never ran. He read and applied the Word of God accessible to him at the time (the Old Testament). Afterwards, he went to the same synagogue in Damascus and began to preach that Jesus is the Son of God (Acts9:20).
☆Saul boldly declared who Jesus was but do we?
☆Do people know you’re a believer?
☆Or are you keeping it hush hush?
☆When you look into the mirror are you forgetting what you look like?
