Acts 10:32-33

32Send therefore to Joppa and ask for Simon who is called Peter. He is lodging in the house of Simon, a tanner, by the sea.’ 33So I sent for you at once, and you have been kind enough to come. Now therefore we are all here in the presence of God to hear all that you have been commanded by the Lord.”

Acts 13:42

42As they went out, the people begged that these things might be told them the next Sabbath.

James 1:19-25

Hearing and Doing the Word

19 a  Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person b  be quick to hear c  slow to speak d  slow to anger; 20for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God. 21Therefore e  put away all filthiness and rampant wickedness and receive with f  meekness the implanted word g  which is able to save your souls.

22But be h  doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. 24For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. 25But the one who looks into the perfect law i  the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts j  he will be blessed in his doing.
