Bible Text: James 1:22-27 | Pastor Keith Bergstrom
In James “the word” and “the law” refer to all of God’s revealed truth to us (I Thessalonians 2:13), including God’s revelation of Himself in Jesus (Luke 24:25-27). God’s words, as opposed to human words, come with power to give spiritual birth, to save, and to work inside us and change us. We are told to not just listen to God’s words, but to do them (James 1:22). For example, pure and faultless faith in Jesus includes both public compassion – love for those in need, and private purity – love for God and His word.
