Spiritual Pride In The Body Of Christ

Joyce Meyer (1)

It’s not going to do you any good to wish you knew the word; the only way you’re going to know it is to study it. But be doers of the word [obey the message], and not merely listeners to it, betraying yourselves [into deception by reasoning contrary to the truth]. v. 23: for if anyone only listens to the word without obeying it and being a doer of it, he is like a man who looks carefully at his [own] natural face in a mirror. v.24: for he thoughtfully observes himself, and then goes off and promptly forgets what he was like. v.25: But he who looks carefully into the faultless law, the [law] of liberty, and is faithful to it and perseveres in looking into it, being not a heedless listener who forgets but an active doer [who obeys], — now here it comes — he shall be blessed in his doing his life of obedience:. To be honest with you, it really would be inaccurate to say that you’ll be blessed if you read the word of god.

We might enjoy it. It might edify us. But the truth of the matter is if you read it and don’t do what it says… I almost think that there has come like a spiritual pride in the body of Christ, especially among so-called word and faith people or maybe the people who consider themselves a little more charismatic. I think that we have gotten so caught up in going to the conference and getting the cd, getting the dvd and getting all the books, we just think we know so much, but what are you doing? There is not one of you if you’ve been around the word of God very long that doesn’t know that the primary message in the bible is love one another. Amen.: Yet I had to rebuke people last night for almost beating other people up to get a seat in this conference. Thank God, that changed.

Joyce Meyer Ministries – We need to love people where they’re at; not compromise with them and get into their lifestyle. But at the same time we need to find a way to come ye out and be separate without making them feel we think that we’re better than they are.
