Preached by Rod Benner (00:39)
Knowing what the Bible says you should do is often times easier than doing what the Bible says you should do. It is all to easy to mistake knowing for applying; where we can know the truth but think that knowing the truth is the same as doing the truth. The irony is that if you don’t apply the truth the right way then you don’t fully know the truth.
In John 1:12, you are told that if you know Jesus as friend and master, then you are a child of God. You “have the right” to be called a child of God. You can know that God says this about you, but do you live like this? Are you often acting as if God doesn’t care about you or if God doesn’t have a purpose for you? If you act this way then you haven’t applied the truth you say you know.
Wake up each morning seeking to always move from knowing to doing.
