Application

All the information in the world is relatively useless if never put into practice. When it comes to learning, a common virtue is held that you really know something when it is applied from your head to your life. It is likely the hardest part of the learning experience to facilitate. However, Christ would say, everyone who hears My words and does them, "is like a wise man who built his house on the rock" (Matthew 7:24, NIV).

There are three qualities that can be used when trying to apply a biblical truth to life. . .

It must be:

1. Personal (The individual needs to see this as something for them to do.)
2.Practical (The individual needs to choose something to do that is doable, within the sphere of their capacity to make it happen.)
3. Provable (The individual needs to make the action so specific that they know when they have done it.)
