The pastor told worshippers about the importance of getting into the Word of God. “We often say it is all about love, but dive into God’s Word, find the truth.” The pastor threw out multiple passages of Scripture to support the message; however, the rapidly fired references left absolutely no time to look up the Scripture. Rather than diving into the Word with him, all we could do was float along on the surface of message. “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like” (James 1:22-24 NIV).
