It does precious little good to memorize the prescription if one doesn’t take the medicine. A mere knowledge of what the Scriptures say may add to our guilt instead of relieving it. There must be application in order for it to work.
Just Do It
Word of the Week
But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was.
The New King James Version, (Nashville, TN: Thomas Nelson Publishers) 1998, c1982.
