“Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.”  (James 1:21, NIV)

We each have a finite capacity for things.  If we fill our lives with good things (and by “thing,” I mean intangibles, rather than tangibles), it will displace the bad, evil, and destructive attitudes, thoughts, and motives that take root within us.

Embrace God’s word as you would a life ring in deep water far from land: It can save you.  Cultivate the word of God, planted within you, through humble acceptance (obedience):  It can save you.

Humble acceptance (obedience) of God’s word leads to salvation, security, and peace.  – Luther
