You May Think This is a Strange Title

Updated on April 21, 2011

Do what God's message says; don't just listen and do nothing, when you merely sit and listen to the message, you are only fooling yourselves.

Suppose a person hears the message of God and does nothing, this is like a man who gazes at his face in the mirror, he "sees" himself for a moment, but when he turns away he forgets what he looks like, this is the same as when God says something we may hear but soon forget what He had said.

When a person who looks at himself for a long time he will remember what he looks like, when we listen and take notice of God for what He has said, we will remember.

There are many who just like to listen and not do anything, its easier for them as they don't have to go out of their way.

God has said many times that the world will come to an end, how many have really taken any notice of this?

God's Word the Bible states very clear that it will be destroyed, our world has been eaten at by the pollution that man has created.

There are those who say there is no God, what fools they are, as they go their way and not listen to the word of God,Psalm 14: "The fool says in his heart, there is no God" they are corrupt, their deeds are vile, there is no-one who does good, the Lord looks down from heaven on the sons of men, to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God.

The royal command is found in the Scripture: "You must love other people the same way you love yourself."

If we obey this command, you are doing fine, but! if you treat anyone differntly, your deeds are sinful! so,according to the law, you will be judged as wrong doers.

And if a person claims to have his faith in God, but does not show it what good is his faith to him? So, faith is dead when you don't show that you have faith, don't you see that a person is righteous before God because of his action? he can not be made right just because of his "Faith" alone.

So don't fool yourselves, if you don't have faith and show it you have nothing.

God has been saying to us for years that we are to have "Faith" and show it by our actions, only then can we be saved, God will save you from the judgement day if you show that you have faith and your actions show it.

      Thank you Apostle Jack so true one can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink, the choice is his.

      but what we must try and do is to make it worth the while that they can't refuse what is being spoken.

      God loves all

      The plate of food is before us that God have set on the table...if one refuse to eat,they also refuse to live.

      God will not force us to eat,He only give us a choice.

      Good hub.
