Matthew 7:24-27 New International Version (NIV)
The Wise and Foolish Builders
24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into PRACTICE is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”
Definition of PRACTICE:
1.the actual application or use of an idea, belief, or method as opposed to theories about such application or use.
1.perform (an activity) or exercise (a skill) repeatedly or regularly in order to improve or maintain one’s proficiency:
During the past 18 days we have walked this 50 day journey together and I’m sure, just like me, there are areas of your life that God has asked you to change.
Today I am challenging you to practice those changes. To make use of; put to use; utilize and apply those changes to your life. And then as you practice those things daily through rehearsal; daily run through; to go over and over again; to work on and work at those changes. Because ‘practice makes perfect”.
Perfect in God’s eyes! And His opinion is the only one that matters.
So if God is asking YOU to forgive – PRACTICE IT.
If God is asking YOU to trust Him – PRACTICE IT.
If God is asking YOU to sacrifice something; be it time, money, relationships – PRACTICE IT.
If God is asking you to witness to someone – PRACTICE IT.
