Today is Thursday.  I enjoyed Church last night and it is always a blessing to see God's people.  What a blessing!  Today looks like it will be a lovely day.  Hope you enjoy yours as well.  Here is a truth I would like to share:

HEARERS ONLY- The New Testament warns us not just to listen to God's Word.  In Jamess 1:22, it says:  "But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves."  This same truth is mentioned in Ezekiel 33:31,32- "And they come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as my people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them:  for with their mouth they shew much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness.  And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument:  for they hear thy words, but they do them not."  These actually enjoy listening to God's man and God's words, but they do not do them!  Jesus said it this way:  Matthew 15:8 "This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me."  Let us not be "hearers only".
