We spend a lot of time coming ere every day to read the Bible. While this is obviously a very good thing, we must do more than just read God’s word. We must apply the things we learn and His commandments for our lives. Luke 6:49 says, “But the one who hears my words and does not put them into practice is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete.” Let us not spend our time simply reading God’s word. Let us live out our lives based on God’s commands and the example left to us by Jesus Christ our savior.
