In fact, head knowledge without sincere life-application is a great problem with many Christians today. Sadly, there are those who know a great deal about the Word of God but who do not live in the light of that wonderful knowledge. Instead, they lock away their knowledge of the Bible in the recesses of their minds and foolishly adopt the ways of the world.
To approach the Word of God with the mind-set of the world, and then to try to synchronize the Scriptures with the philosophy or psychology of a humanistic culture is to violate every principle of intellectual honesty and moral integrity. The Lord Jesus Christ paid a tremendous price to deliver us out of this present evil world, and the Word of God certainly contradicts the thought patterns of a Christ-rejecting generation.

Only when we can identify with the testimony of the prophet Jeremiah will the Word of God bring its intended blessing to our lives. There is no real link made between the head and the heart—between the Voice of God and the life of the believer.
As a result, there is too often very little correlation between what we know and what we do. When Bible teaching really stirs your heart, it will most certainly change your life! As this happens, you will find yourself becoming much less dependent upon human support systems, such as family counselors and neatly-packaged seminars, for you will have discovered how God has intended for you to personally appropriate the promises that He has made to you in His Word. There is a difference between the Word of God being applauded as an intellectual stimulus, and that of its being applied as a life-transforming Truth.
Truly, sermons should give people something to act upon , not just something to think about! Even today, when I visit Bible colleges as a guest lecturer, I tell my students:.
