James 1:23 ” Anyone who listens to the Word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like.”

You know your face better than anyone else…every nook and cranny – every spot and wrinkle.  You’re familiar enough with your face that you can readily pick yourself out of a group picture.  We need to know the Word of God in the same manner.  We can’t causally listen to His Word allowing it to go in one ear and out the other.  His Word must go deep inside…changing us for the better – not being dismissed and forgotten.  The key is to contemplate, internalize, and apply His Word to your life…mirroring His life with yours.
