Having exhorted us to turn away from out sins and to receive the implanted Word, James moves on to warn us that it is not enough to just hear the Word; we must also put it into practice in our lives.

We meditate on what it means to be effectual doers of the Word and on the blessings that will be ours if we obey this injunction. We contrast this teaching of Scripture with the message that is commonly heard today, that would seek to persuade us that we can hear the Word of God but live as we please.
