James 1:22 Deep Dive // Do My Everyday Decisions Really Matter?
Mar 01, 2023
Natalie Abbott

What is God’s Word supposed to do in our lives? And is my obedience really that important? We’re so glad you’re here today as Natalie Abbott, co-founder of Dwell Differently, unpacks James 1:22 for us, answering important questions, digging into the context, and helping us avoid 2 common dangers when reading this verse. Our prayer is that you would see James 1:22—which can feel a little bit like a kick in the pants—as a kindness from God, convicting us where we need it, and inviting us to live life in community as we seek to follow Jesus in our everyday lives. As Natalie says, “I hope that it brings us to a place of repentance and restoration, which is God’s heart for us as his people.”

This month’s memory verse: “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.” — James 1:22
