James 1:22-24 The Passion Translation (TPT)
22 Don’t just listen to the Word of Truth and not respond to it, for that is the essence of self-deception. So always let his Word become like poetry written and fulfilled by your life![a]
23 If you listen to the Word and don’t live out the message you hear, you become like the person who looks in the mirror of the Word to discover the reflection of his face in the beginning.[b] 24 You perceive how God sees you in the mirror of the Word,[c] but then you go out and forget[d] your divine origin.
