The Man in the Mirror

       James 1:23-24 says "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: For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was." Reading this scripture we understand that not only do we need faith in this life but we need to DO what we profess to believe in. Just a chapter and a few verses later James says, "Ye see then how that by works a man is justfied, and not by faith only." And, "For as the body without the spirit is dead, is faith without works is dead also." Hopefully we can be the man we see in the mirror throughout the day and our lives.
