Change Your Life

Many people may look at the Bible as nothing more than ancient history, with little relevance for their lives. Others may think of the Bible as stories they were taught as a child, but it may not have meaning for them today. Don't be deceived. The truth is this, the Bible is God's word to you that can change your life.

How can the Bible change your life? It will be life changing for you only if you do the word. Many are willing to hear the word of God taught, but they do nothing about it. Only hearing the word will never change your life until you do the word. "But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves" (James 1:22). 

Hear the word taught. Read the word for yourself, but don't stop there. Do the word. Read the Bible for more than history of the ancient past. Hear the word for more than a good sermon about God. Don't be deceived. Determine to be a doer of the word, and God will change your life.

Consider some personal action steps that will change your life. (1) Believe the word of God can change your life, because it tells you of the only true and living God who can change your life. (2) Pray the word of God. Make the Bible your prayer book. Pray the promises of God. He always keeps His promises to believers. (3) Obey the commands of God for your life. Trust and obey the God who can do good things in your life for His glory. Be a doer of the word.
