The Mirror of God's Word

The Mirror of God's Word - James 1:22-25
A married woman tells herself that having a drink alone with her boss after work won’t hurt anything.(1)

The Mirror of God's Word - James 1:22-25
A man decides he must have misunderstood God's call to missions because the woman he wants to marry doesn't want to live far from home.

A woman has a gut feeling that the yoga chants she’s doing are unbiblical, but the more she does them, the less they bother her.

A young couple decides that watching movies that mock godly values won’t affect them and might even help them identify with their unsaved neighbors.(2)

God's Word is a mirror, revealing our sins so we can repent and spare ourselves sorrow. 

But we need to do more than look into the mirror. We need to apply what we see to our lives (James 1:22-25).

If we don't obey, we deceive ourselves. And self-deception always leads to greater sins (1 John 1:8; Jeremiah 17:9).
