ARE YOU A DOER OF THE WORD?

woman thinking

I am very excited to write about this topic which greatly inspires me. Many of us go through our Christian lives without being doers of the word. The bible says in the book of James 1:22 “but be all of you doers of the word and not hearers only deceiving yourselves”. Are you a doer of the word? What does being a doer of the word actually refer to? Many people do not even know what it means to be a doer of the word. You are a doer of the word when you do not worry about circumstances. The bible states in the book of Philippines 4:6 that “we should not worry nor fret but by prayers, thanksgiving and supplication we should make our request known to the Lord.” Being a doer of the word means we do not have to worry about anything because God is taking of our problems for us. Whatever you are looking for whether it is a child, marriage, a job, healing for a sickness, commit it to the Lord and he would provide it for you.

Also the bible states in Mark 16:17-18 “And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues. They will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

If you are a Christian Brother or sister and these signs are not following you then you are not fully tapping into your potential. I know some persons would tell me but I do not have as much grace as the big men of God, how can I do such things. Friends, everybody who believes can cast out demons. The scripture did not say only the big men of God. I used to think along this line too until I was faced with a situation where a guy was possessed and needed help and there was no man of God around. I was the only one who could do something because all the other guys were afraid to approach this guy because they said they did not know where he has put his hands. Notwithstanding, I approached this guy with all the courage and as soon as I laid my hands on his head, he started manifesting. I then took him into bible studies and prayers and before long he was normal again to the glory of God.

So, friends if you are not casting out demons, speaking in tongues and laying hands on the sick then you are not a doer of the word. In addition, you have to be a walking in love too. Go out and start being a doer of the word. Today is the day to start and you would be amazed just what God can do in peoples’ lives. I wish you all a nice weekend.

  1. “So, friends if you are not casting out demons, speaking in tongues and laying hands on the sick then you are not a doer of the word.”

    Not necessarily true. These acts are signs of the gifts of Healing, Miracles, and Tongues. 1 Corinthians 12:11 “All these are empowered by one and the same Spirit, who apportions to each one individually as he wills.” (ESV). One can’t simply have these gifts. It is good to seek after, and if GOD wills it, then the seeker will receive the gift, but if God chooses not to give the gift, it does not mean that the person is not a doer of the word.

    And there are so many more things that are required to be a doer of the word. Are you keeping the commandments? Are you keeping the Sabbath holy? This is a much bigger issue than gifts…

    • friend, thank you for your comment. i think i could not include all the things that prove one is a doer of the word. thanks for the other ones you added and
      i hope to receive more comments from you. God bless you.

      • I think I misinterpreted your intentions when you said that. I heard “You are not a doer of the word unless you are…” whereas by your comment, I think you were saying, in more specific language, that these miracles are not performed by “uber-Christians”, but should be routinely performed by all Christians. So, if you are a Christian, these should not be shocking occurrences, but the norm. All Christians have the capability to cast out demons and heal. (Tongues, besides a prayer tongue, I’m not so certain that all Christians can have.)

        Thank you for a thought-provoking post.
