Rhapsody Of Realities – Living Out The Word

Living Out The Word

But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed (James 1:25).

Doing the Word of God should be natural for you as a Christian, because being born again, you’re born of the Word (1 Peter 1:23). That means you have the nature

of the Word, which gives you the ability to do the Word. Simply living out the Word is the key to an excellent and victorious life; that’s where the blessing is.

Where some Christians have a problem is that they don’t know how to do the Word. Some think that doing the Word means “obeying” the Word, no; both thoughts may sound similar, but they’re very different. In the Old Testament, they were told to obey the Word of God. In the New Testament, we don’t obey the Word of God; we do the Word of God! In the Old Testament, the Word was to them an outside force. In the New Testament, it’s an inside force. The Word lives in us today; we’re born of the Word, and are thus, one with the Word.

You’ll only have to obey the Word if you had a different life or nature apart from the Word. God’s Word is your life, and through the “mirror principle,” He made it possible for you to live out the Word.

Here’s how it works: The Word of God is the mirror of God. The Bible says anyone who hears the Word and doesn’t do what it says, is like a man who sees himself in a mirror, turns around and forgets what he looks like (James 1:23-24). This means that God expects you to see yourself the way He sees you in His Word, and then act accordingly.

For example, the Word says you’re a joint-heir with Christ; therefore, you should never talk broke or live as one who’s disadvantaged in life. The world belongs to you as much as it belongs to Christ. All things are yours (1 Corinthians 3:21). Irrespective of your feelings or the circumstances, endorse these truths and act on them accordingly. The blessing is in acting on the Word, not just hearing or believing it. The creative power of the Word becomes effective once ignited by the faith-response from your spirit, bringing about a transformation in your life, from glory to glory.

PRAYER

Dear Father, I thank you because your Word is working mightily and producing results in me. My life is for your glory, and I exude the excellence of the Spirit, fruitful and productive in every good work, and manifesting the fruits of righteousness, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
