“If anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was” (Jas 1:23-24).

A friend recently shared that the word “natural” is genesis, suggesting that a hearer is kept from being a doer by forgetting what resources we now have as new creations in Christ. Selah!
