duty v 21
DUTY v 21
  • Remove the world:Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness
    • To lay apart means to renounce or to put away
    • Rom 13:12; Col 3:8; Heb12:1; Eph 4:22
    • Filthiness---Moral filth, evil talk, obscenity, lasciviousness
    • Superfluity---overflowing or a more than ordinary amount
    • Naughtiness---Having an evil mind or evil thoughts, a way of thinking
    • I John 2:15-17
  • Receive the word: and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.
    • Receive with meekness---to embrace, to follow, to deliberately accept
    • Engrafted---means implanted from another souce
    • Luke 8:11
    • Acts 20:32
demonstration v 22
  • Doing:But be ye doers of the word,
    • It is easy to say, but it is hard to do!
    • To do means to perform Read Rev 22:14
    • We must do what God expects
      • Think how we ought to think, Say what we ought to say, Live how we ought to live
      • I John 3:18
  • Deceiving: and not hearers only deceiving your own selves.
    • We are deceiving ourselves if we think we do not have to do exactly what the Bible says II Cor 2:11
    • Satan wants you to believe that the little things do not matter
      • One church is just as good as another,

      • Believe what you want just as long as you believe in Christ,
delusion v 23 24
DELUSION v 23-24
  • Jas 1:23 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:
  • Jas 1:24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.
  • Forgetting is Foolish
    • Imagine looking in the mirror and noticing that your hair is not right
    • Then walking away and forgetting what you look like
    • Natural----means the kind, or existence
    • Seeing yourself for who you really are and not doing anything is foolish!
  • Not Doing is Dangerous
    • When we do not do what God commands we are in danger of eternal damnation
    • John 8:21-24; Luke 13:3
    • We must also do according to the Scriptures
    • We must do the right thing the right way for the right reason!
      • Rom 12:20
decision v 25
  • Looking in the Law of Liberty:But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty
    • To look into the law of liberty is to bow, and seek diligently, to look closely, to bend down beside
    • God’s law is the N.T. (Gal 6:2)
    • God’s law is perfect (no mistakes, and it is all sufficient)
    • God has one law for all people (Acts 17:30-31)
    • It is a law of liberty because it liberates us from sin
  • Living in the 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.
    • To continue means to stay close!
    • Doing brings blessings
    • James 1:12
