Summary: The Word of God can change us - if we allow it

The Mirror of the Word

James 1:22-25

A - allows us to truly see a portion of ourselves in God’s eyes

1- We learn how to live His way.

James 4:17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

Gal 6:10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them

who are of the household of faith.

2 - We learn God’s expectations.

B - we see what to change

Eph 4:28-29 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands

the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.

29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of

edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

1- actions 2 - speech - learned just in two verses -

Did you see yourself here? what will you do if you did?

C - why change - why obey the word?


Rom 2:5-8 God; 6 Who will render to every man according to his deeds:

7 To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and

immortality, eternal life: 8 But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth,

but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath,

Rom 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your

mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

I Jn 2:4-6 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the

truth is not in him. 5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected:

hereby know we that we are in him. 6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so

to walk, even as he walked.


Many have seen themselves in the mirror of the Word. Far less have allowed it to change them.

Today you have a choice - allow God’s Word to change you or choose to forget it.
