22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. 23 Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror 24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. 25 But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do. James 1:22-25
“My children, I have given you words to live by; to edify you, keep you safe and bring you salvation. Don’t only listen to these words; live by them. Freedom comes by living in the law. By this you will be aware of your sinful nature so you will be aware of your sinful nature so you can repent and ask for forgiveness. You have been saved by my grace which frees you from sin’s control. Live as I have created you to live, free to obey and receive my gifts and rewards for being faithful. Be the light in the darkness so others can follow in your path. Commit your heart and mind to Christ.” This is the Word of the Lord.
