PUTTING INTO PRACTICE

Journal Entry by Warren Mortomore

S – Scripture:  Luke 11:28 (NLT)
Jesus replied, “But even more blessed are all those who hear the word of God and put it into practice.’  (NLT)

O - Observation
Jesus is saying, even more blessed than the blessing of our parents or human relationships is the blessing that comes when we hear his word, and then put it into practice – keep it!

A - Application
What am I reading, what am I hearing from His word on a daily basis – and what I am I doing with it, how am I living it, am I putting it into practice?  James backs up the words of Jesus to us in his letter (James 1:22-26) not to be just hearers only, but doers, otherwise we deceive ourselves and will not receive his blessings (1:25).  I am not to compare myself with others, what are they doing – but what His word tells me to do

P - Prayer
Help me Lord to hear from you and to live out what your are showing and telling me to do. I want to put into practice that which you are saying to me through your word.
