28 But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.
I know most go to church and hear the word preached. I know most crack open a bible at least once a week outside of church. We can repeat scripture, but are we keeping his word? Are we living the life. I know many that know the word. I know many that can tell you almost any scripture in the bible, but they are not keeping the word. The thing is, if you know the word, you should be living it. That means if you know Christ said do not look upon a woman with lust, then do not look upon a woman with lust. If the word said do not covet thy neighbors possessions, then stop wanting his truck. If the word says do not be a drunkard, then do not be getting drunk. You can know the word and you can recite the word, but until you apply it to your life, you have no idea the truth of the word.
