Doers, Not Hearers Only!

Doers, not Hearers Only!

“But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your selves.” James 1:22

‘Hearing God’ is an act every believer should continuously experience, but acting by what is being heard is more significant. It is effortless to pay attention and hear from God, but it is more difficult for an average believer to take everyday actions towards God’s leading. Therefore, a crucial corollary part of hearing God is a quick and total adherence to whatever God gives as an instruction.

Romans 2:13 says, “For it is not the hearers of the law who are righteous before God, but it is the doers of the law who will be declared righteous.” So it does look somehow because the things of the spirit are different from the belief system of this world. One of the proofs of a direct walk in the will of God is sacrifice and obedience to God’s voice. So, when certain things seem pleasing to the flesh, quickly give a check; it might be against the will of God.

James 2:14 says, “What good is it, my brothers and sister, if someone claims to have faith, but has no deeds? Can such faith save them?”

Brethren, we must sharpen our faith with work. It takes consistency in obedience for a human being to actively and snappily respond to God’s voice and His commands. We cannot continue calling upon God and refusing to follow his commandment or do what he asks us to do. Luke 6:46 says, “Why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord, but not do what I say?” In other words, we must obey him and live by his word. Because every of God’s words is meant to be practiced, we are not just to read and teach them. One of the reasons believers must obey God’s audible voice and the written is because people are watching. It is not for their watching’s sake, but to be an example of a good Christian.

One of the best means of evangelism is through your lifestyle. Your life is meant to be teachable and reachable so that you become preachable through your lifestyle, not just the words of your mouth. Your behavior and character should reflect the gospel message you want to spread. Jesus said, “everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.” Matthew 7:24


  1. Lord, help me be submissive to your will so that I may obey your words perfectly.
  2. Oh Lord, help me be obedient in every way to fulfill your plan in Jesus’ name. Amen.
