Romans 2:13 says: For it is not the hearers of the law who are righteous before God, but the doers of the law who will be justifiedLuke 6:46-48 says: Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do what I tell you? Everyone who comes to me and hears my words and does them, I will show you what he is like: he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when a flood arose, the stream broke against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built.John 13:17 says: If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them.Matthew 12:50 says: For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.”1 John 2:3 says: And by this we know that we have come to know him, if we keep his commandments.James 4:17 So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sinSurely the way to the Victorious Christian Life is by hearing and doing?
