Doing More Than Listen

The book of James implores us to be more than hearers only, but doers of the Word. Here are some very practical ways you can apply and follow up on the word you heard.

Forgiveness is

Putting Away Guilt

Christ has satisfied the wrath of God on sin which covers over lingering guilt of past sin.
Homework:
Read: Galatians 1-3
Memorize: Galatians 3:13
 
Apply:
God’s people must be in prayer on behalf of the land and the people who they live around. Pray for those who are experiencing grief, heartache, and trials regardless of why they are being dealt with in their life. Ask the Lord to open opportunity for you to be able to minister to people who are hurting around you, then take time to offer physical assistance and to pray people who the Lord brings into your day.

Forgiveness is

Imitating Christ

The character of Christ will be revealed in those who have forgiveness from God.
Related imageHomework:
Read: Psalm 37-39
Memorize: Psalm 37:28
 
Apply:
Forgiveness is more than mere words spoken by practical changes that come about in a person’s life due to being forgiven. Put into practice the things mentioned in today’s text. If someone makes you angry, quickly address the issue with them in private. Resolve conflict between brothers and sisters by each of you turning to the Lord; resolve conflict with non-believers by treating them as Christ has treated you.

Forgiveness is

Revealed in Actions

Image result for forgiveness is revealed in actions

Conformity to God’s character and commandments show true forgiveness.
Homework:
Read: 1 Corinthians 9-11
Memorize: 1 Corinthians 10:6
 
Apply:
Forgiveness first received and then given has an immediate and physical effect on a person. The most revealed action is the ability to refuse to bring up past hurts, or allow the past aggression to prevent them from moving past the hurt. This is true since the one who has received forgiveness from God is then free to imitate God’s character by being obedient to His Word and follow His will in the strength and the Holy Spirit allows them to do.

 Forgiveness is

Received by God

 
There is no forgiveness of sins if God has not forgiven them.
 
Homework:
Read: Luke 10-12
Memorize: Luke 12:2
 
Apply: This week be sure to freely offer forgiveness to those who have been repeat offenders, flatters, and insincere to you. Life is far too short and difficult to complicate it with a bitter, unforgiving heart. Forgiveness is a little easier when we remember that no one, not even you, deserves forgiveness. If you can treat someone today as though the hurts of yesterday were the same as your sins Christ has forgiven you of, then you have given forgiveness as you has received it from God.
