“For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in a mirror; for once he has looked at himself and gone away, he has immediately forgotten what kind of person he was. But one who has looked intently at the perfect law, the law of freedom, and has continued in it, not having become a forgetful hearer but an active doer, this person will be blessed in what he does.” (James 1:23-25 NASB)
Makes no sense to hear God’s word and not respond positively. It is not difficult to understand how God expects His children to live. His word is clear. We can fool ourselves pretending whatever we can imagine, but we cannot fool God. Be real and be blessed.
