"Be doers of the word and not hearers only"
- James 1:22
There's an old story of a Christian couple, who ordered a wedding cake from a well-known catering shop in town. As part of their order, they asked that their cake have a special verse written on top. It was the Scripture from 1 John 4:18 which reads, "There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear."
The caterer wrote down their request, but wasn't familiar with the Bible. So, instead of 1 John 4:18, the wedding cake had the words of John 4:18, "You have had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband."
Last Sunday, I invited everyone to be Doers of the Word by being Students of the Word. Read the Bible and pray every day. This doesn't have to be an hour-long ordeal. It can simply be a 15-minute daily discipline. It's strengthening our heart, mind, and soul with the always-nutritious, always-delicious Word of God.
Join us this weekend, as we continue our journey thorugh the book of James.
