LIVING THE WORD

 JAMES 1:23-27

23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:

24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.

Brothers, what truth James is speaking to us here in the first chapter of the book of James. He is especially speaking to you and I in this day.
 
Think back if you will to the time in your life when you last felt lifted up in God's word. That renewing of your spirit moment should be with you each, and every day as you go through this life.

God tells us here, through the apostle James, that if we are not doing his word then we are like a man beholding his on natural face in a glass. 

We are not just to hear his word on Sunday morning. He says that it is not enough just to hear his word for a few minutes each day or each week. Hearing is not enough. We must follow up with doing the word after we have heard his word.

He goes on to say that if when you look into the glass, and you see yourself then it is yourself that you will be doing for.
 
Brothers, you and I should practice seeing Jesus when we look into that glass. If we see him looking back at us then we will go about doing his word, and not just hearing his word.

After all it was for you and I that Jesus died. If we do not do his word, then we have failed to perform the assignment that he gave to us.

James tells us that if we see ourselves in the glass then straight away we will forget what matter of man we are. Brothers, we are God's children, and we must live like the sons of God that his word tells us that we are.

We were not saved to go about trying to see how much money, or things that we can acquire. On the contrary we must be doing God's word. Doing it, living it, and being it. We are representing him as we go through this life. Brothers, we must remember who we are. We are God's.

25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

Brothers, you will be blessed in all your deeds that you do for the Lord our God. When we pass by that glass, and see the image of Jesus looking back at us, instead of our own reflection, then we will find it easy to be a doer of his word, rather than a hearer only. 

26 If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion isvain.

Brothers, a part of doing his word is to not speak vial and worldly comments to our fellow man as we step from the light into the darkness of this world. We can, and should try every day to walk, speak, and act like the Christians that we are to be. Our life should be lived, as Jesus prayed that it would be lived.

Do you see here in verse 26 that if we are not living, and doing God's word then we are just walking through this world living a self serving vain religious life. God forbid!

27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

Who are the fatherless?
 
There are many children to day who are fatherless, but here James is referring to the elderly of our community who's fathers have past on. These elderly in nursing homes, and at home are to often forgotten by their relatives, and some have no living relatives.

The widows are also to be visited by us. Do you see that doing God's word is expected of us. It is not a suggestion, but rather is plainly told to us here in the first chapter of James how that we are to be a doer of God's word, and not a hearer only.

God bless you my brothers in Christ Jesus.

No one in the world can follow everything in the scriptures. It is highly impossible. A simple example is getting frustrated at neighbors or colleagues who have a different point of view than us.
