James 1:21-25

1:21 So put away all filth and evil excess and humbly 1  welcome the message implanted within you, which is able to save your souls. 1:22 But be sure you live out the message and do not merely listen to it and so deceive yourselves. 1:23 For if someone merely listens to the message and does not live it out, he is like someone 2  who gazes at his own face 3  in a mirror. 1:24 For he gazes at himself and then goes out and immediately forgets 4  what sort of person he was. 1:25 But the one who peers into the perfect law of liberty and fixes his attention there, 5  and does not become a forgetful listener but one who lives it out – he 6  will be blessed in what he does. 7
