It’s important to not just read the Bible. We must put it into practice in our daily lives.
In Philippians 4:9, the apostle Paul urges us “whatever you have learned or receive or heard from me, or seen in me, put into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.”
Here is an example. A few verses beforehand, in Philippians 4:6, Paul teaches us “Do not be anxious about anything…”. In this chapter he’s also talking about living with the joys Christ in our lives and being content with the ups and downs of life.
Do you want to remain anxious or stressed out about things or do you want the peace of God to be with you?
Like Paul, I urge you to exchange the anxiety and discontented feelings of this life with the peace that comes from God alone.
