Christians should be walking Bibles. Xenophon said many read the laws of Lycurgus, but few observed them. The Word written is not only a rule of knowledge, but rule of obedience; it is not only to mend our sight, but to mend our pace. David calls God’s Word a “lamp to his feet” (Ps. 119:105). It was not only a light to his eyes to see by, but to his feet to walk by; by practice we trade the talent of knowledge, and turn it to profit. This is a blessed reading of Scriptures - when we fly from the sins which the Word forbids, and espouse the duties which the Word commands. Reading without practice will be but a torch to light men to hell.

-Thomas Watson, Heaven Taken by Storm - ed. 1992 by Soli Deo Gloria Publications, pg. 126
