Knowing the Bible is important, but living the Bible is the real goal of a life of vital faith.
n October author and pastor Dr. Mel Lawrenz, who previously wrote the series How to Understand the Bible and How to Study the Bible, begins a new weekly email series called How to Live the Bible. These practical lessons will help any believer understand how to apply the truth of Scripture to everyday life and how our lives can be shaped and transformed.
Everyday life includes highs and lows, accomplishments and failures, gains and losses. Whatever our circumstances, we need what James called “the implanted word” which can rescue us (James 1:21). We are to be “doers of the word, and not hearers only.” Or, as Jesus said, “Everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock” (Matthew 7:24).
But how do we do that? How do we get over our hesitations? How do we know what God wants us to do in response to the word?
