Life Applications from the Bible – Vol. 29

Life Applications from the Bible – Vol. 29

I finished reading the Book of James last week and started on Genesis. There are so many wonderful life applications in Genesis! These are some of the lessons I found in these two books:

  • James 2:18 – Faith is a noun that is not visible to the eye. Only the effects of faith can be seen. Acting out your faith makes it tangible and visible. Works prove that the faith is there; it is the evidence.
  • James 3:9 – A good example of this scripture would be like someone being nice and kind to me but hating on my children. This would not set well with me!

  • Genesis 2:9 – There were so many trees available to them, and only one they could not eat of the fruit.
    • Why do we always look for the exceptions?
    • Why is the sin more appealing than what the Lord says? They had the Tree of LIFE and chose the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and EVIL!
    • Satan tempts us to choose the bad by making it look like it is the best choice.
    • The Lord gave us His laws and commands for our good, not to harm us.
  • Genesis 3:10 – With the knowledge of good and evil came shame, blame, and regret. Why would we ever want the knowledge of these?



If you have joined me recently, these weekly life applications from the Bible are examples of some of the comments I write in the Bibles I am giving to my grandchildren when they graduate. Click here to see the post where I explain this eternal gift idea.


I read a post this week about using creative journaling while reading the Bible. Read Creative Bible Journaling on Amy’s Creative Pursuits. She incorporates beautiful artwork into her journaling.


I would love to pray for any specific needs you may have. Feel free to email me any prayer requests. Other than that, stay in the Word daily. I pray the weekly life applications help you in some way.


Have a Grace & Joy-filled day!
