We are living during a communication explosion. We receive so much information. We process so many words, but there is one word that we truly need—the Book of all books, the very truth that came to us directly from the mind of God, His Holy Word, the Bible.
For the next section James is going to talk about the Word:
V. 18 says we were begat by the Word of truth.
V. 21 says we need to receive the engrafted Word.
V. 22 says we need to be doers of the Word.
V. 23 again says be a doer of the Word.
V. 25 says we need to look at the perfect law of liberty—which is God’s Word.
