Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says (James 1:22 NLT).
And remember, it is a message to obey, not just to listen to. If you don’t obey, you are only fooling yourself (James 1:22 NIV)
Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love (Ephesians 4:15,16 ESV).
“But be very careful to obey all the commands and the law that Moses gave to you. Love the Lord your God, walk in all his ways, obey his commands, be faithful to him, and serve him with all your heart and all your soul” (Joshua 22:5 NLT).
Then Samuel said, “Do you think all God wants are sacrifices – empty rituals just for show? He wants you to listen to him! Plain listening is the thing, not staging a lavish religious production”
(1 Samuel 15:22 Msg.).
And Samuel said, “Has the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to listen than the fat of rams”
(1 Samuel 15:22 ESV).
He replied, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it” (Luke 11:28 NIV).
“But you have God-blessed eyes – eyes that see! And God-blessed ears – ears that hear!” (Matthew 13:16 Msg.)
“Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:19-20 NLT).
“And that’s just the beginning: After that – “I will pour out my Spirit on every kind of people: Your sons will prophesy, also your daughters. Your old men will dream, your young men will see visions. I’ll even pour out my Spirit on the servants, men and women both. I’ll set wonders in the sky above and signs on the earth below”
(Joel 2:28-30 Msg ).
