Practical Discipleship – Action
In St. James’ letter to the church, he tells us to “be doers of the word and not hearers, only deceiving yourselves.” But James also realizes this may be difficult to do, as he acknowledges we have a problem activating our faith, tells us what our problem is, and shows us a solution.
Now it’s pretty obvious that there’s a link between having faith in Jesus, and doing what he says. It sounds simple, right? But why is it so challenging to be a “doer of the word” in our everyday lives?
