Reading God’s Word but not doing anything about it is about as effective as trying to catch an airplane to another country without actually buying a ticket and catching the flight.
Even if you have all the information about how to purchase a ticket and have the money ready to buy it, if you don't pay for the ticket and make your way to the airport and get on your plane, you'll never get to your destination.
Being a doer of the Word is a two-part process:
1. You have to read the Word, absorb it, and think about how it applies to you.
2. You have to do it.
Although you may always have areas to improve in, if you are doing your best to live God’s Word…
When you read God’s Word, ask yourself, "How can I apply this to my life?"
