The word does not mix with wickedness

James Bible Background

11.19.2017 – New Testament: Jam 1.21

To read the Bible in a year, read James 1 on November 19, In the year of our Lord 2017

By Don Ruhl

We want the word in our hearts, but we still embrace part of the world, and that just does not work,

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). 

We have to want to lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness and we have to want to receive the word. The more of the word we see, the more we will want to discard the evil that has found residence in our souls.

Questions:

  • What does it mean to receive the word with meekness?
  • What is your top priority in life?
