Put Your Knowledge Into Action

Read: Colossians 1:9-12

The book of Colossians encourages us to put our knowledge into practice. It’s not enough to just know information from the Bible because knowledge doesn’t necessarily equal wisdom and understanding. In order to gain the full understanding that God wants for us, we must live out our faith. Like the teacher who can’t gain full understanding of the effectives of his lesson plans until after he’s presented them, we can’t gain full understanding of the Biblical knowledge we have obtained until we actually act on what we know.

We can know that we are called to serve others (1 Peter 4:10), but until we serve, we aren’t going to fully understand the purpose of serving. We can know that we must forgive others (Ephesians 4:32), but until we put that knowledge into practice, we won’t gain the wisdom that comes from living more like Jesus. We can know that we must put God first in our finances (Malachi 3:8-12), but until we tithe and give offerings joyfully, our knowledge is nothing but knowledge. God wants us to live lives full of wisdom and understanding. By putting our knowledge into action, we can begin to gain those qualities and become more like Him.

Reflect:

  • Are there any Biblical truths that you know but aren’t putting into action? What is one step you can take today to move from knowledge to wisdom and understanding?
  • Do you need to know more about the Bible before you can begin putting it into action? Just ten minutes of reading a day can change your life. Try one of reading plans to help you get started.
