James 1:22- “But the doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.” Martin Luther said this about our faith: “Oh, it is a living, busy, active, mighty thing, this faith. And so it is impossible for it not to do good works incessantly.” The Word of God is not merely to be heard, but it is to be received, believed, and implemented. James reminds us of this, and he encourages us to examine our lives and come to repentance where we can see we are living out our faith in sincerity.
