Doers of the Word

These verses are from James 1:19-27.  Sometimes I think it’s good to stop and check myself. Am I a doer of the word? The word which I try to study on a daily basis? The word which I teach to my children? This is a 3 minute video. You can find more inspirational Bible videos here. They are great to add to family or personal scripture study.

 19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:

 20 For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.

 21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.

 22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

 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.

 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.

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

 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.

  1. I can’t wait to share the video resource with my grandchildren! And I wanted to say the most truly Christian man I ever knew never talked about being a Christian but everything he did reflected it. He died when he was only 30 years old and I still tell my sons that if they are like Uncle David I will be the happiest woman alive. David was a doer.
