The Word is a Mirror

The Bible is a letter from God telling who He is, what He is doing and what He would like us to do. We find in the Book of James that we are to use the Bible as a mirror so as to keep watch over ourselves. As we read the word, we are able to see if we are doers or merely hearers.

James1.21 Therefore put away all filthiness and rampant wickedness and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.

22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. 24 For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. 25 But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.
