James 1:22 -- "But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves." The word of God is not merely to be heard, but to be received and believed. Our faith is implanted and strengthened by the word of God. And as Luther said, ,"Oh, it is a living, busy, active, mighty thing, this faith. And so, it is impossible for it not to do good works incessantly." James reminds us of this -- and encourages us to examine our lives and come to repentance where we can see that we are not living out our faith in sincerity. STEWARDSHIP - Is from the heart
