“No matter how extensive one’s scriptural knowledge, or how amazing one’s memory, it is self deception if that is all there is. True knowledge is the prelude to action, and it is the obedience to the Word that counts in the end”

– Peter David in his commentary on the book of James

“Mere knowledge of Scripture is not the pinnacle; it’s only the prelude to active obedience, and that’s all that ultimately counts. This truth is present in our Saviors words: ‘If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them’ (John 13:17).”

-C.J. Mahaney Humility
