Review of Not Just a Hearer but a Doer

by Yolanda Shanks


We sit in the pews. We sing the songs. We recite Scripture.  Scripture we know by heart. And yet buried in the midst of this routine are commands and requests straight from the Most High that go ignored. We've become so reliant on God fulfilling His end of the bargain that we fail to follow through with ours.

We've Become Hearers.

In 31 days, Yolanda Shanks' devotional study, Not Just a Hearer but a Doer, will help you find calls to action within Scripture... and then act upon them. Starting with small things, like seeing that the Lord is good and working your way up to bigger actions, such as being a bold witness for Christ, you'll soon have the tools, desire and confidence to put Scripture into practice. Just as God intended.

God wants doers.
My review of Not Just a Hearer but a Doer:
I have read many devotionals over the years, and I feel confident that this is one of the best I've encountered!  It is practical, applicable, and easy-to-read.   Yolanda includes devotional lessons for 31 days.  Each devotional includes:  observations, background, interpretations, application, additional memory scriptures and a section for written notes/prayers.   Some examples of titles of daily devotions are:  Surrendering One's Self as a Disciple of Christ, Having Positioned Feet, Stirred and Willing to Give, and Don't Give Up, Hang in There!, and many more.   Reading and studying with this book felt like sitting down for coffee with an old friend.
