Doers of the Word
"But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves." (James 1:22)
Be ye doers. God sees more beauty in you than you can see. When the Word of God works in your soul, some great things will come out of you. You do not know what they will be. Angels are arranging for it. God will use you in a unique way. He needs you. He cannot build His Kingdom without you. You must contribute something to the Kingdom of God so that it shines brighter before the world, than it did before. In Christian countries the children get an impetus from their mother's piety. The piety of the mother and the prayer of the father will not go in vain. Our Bible is a mirror. In the morning we saw a flaw in us in the Bible - mirror. Then we forgot to wash it. So we must look into it again. We easily forget what manner of men we are.
Civilized people feel free to move among cultured people. There is cultural liberty. We are trained in pronunciation and manners. We know how to move among educated people. There is a liberty you need to move among the angels. Poisonous thoughts are like foul breath to them. John walked in the streets of Heaven. Paul was taken to the third Heaven. Isaiah did not have that liberty. He cried out, "Woe is me ...." So the angel cleansed his lips with holy fire. Then he was released into that liberty. A daughter will not ask her father, "May I come near?" God is giving us that liberty. He bought us with a great price. God values us very much. Are we satisfied if we have money in our pocket to buy just one cup of coffee? No it is not so. Do not be satisfied with just a little prayer. We must be able at any time to enter into His presence and call Him, 'Abba Father' "But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord" (II Corinthians 3:18). Do you believe this? As the incorruptible Word works in you, you are transformed.
Keep your tongue and you will keep your soul from trouble. How sweet our tongue is if the Spirit of God rules our soul! It will be a great blessing. "Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile" (Psalms 34:13). The devil wants to spoil your fitness to pray. Your words should have no negative emotions in them. Negative emotions produce sickness. People without guile will live long. Your body will not suffer much by sickness. When you follow the incorruptible Word, your body is kept healthy.
