But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. James 1:22

James has just spoken of “the implanted word.” It is this, as he said, “which is able to save your souls.” He now builds upon that thought. It is the word which brings one to an understanding of the gospel (Paul says this in Romans 10:17 with the words, “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”).Read the rest

Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls. James 1:21

So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; James 1:19

James now enters into a section of exhortation by saying, “So then.” With a very small change in the first word, some manuscripts say, “Know this.” Thus, it would be stated as an imperative.Read the rest

Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures. James 1:18

James now speaks of the faith of the believer and how it comes about. The words here are to be contrasted to those of verse 15 –

15) Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.Read the rest
