James 1:27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
When we declare ourselves as “Christians” we must ensure ourselves not to mean it solely in the religious sense but rather the spiritual sense. Many religious people read the word but do not live it, many religious people pray but do not know to whom they pray to, many religious people hear the truth but do not listen to it, they nod their head in agreement but have not sought to understand it. Therefore we must humble ourselves, and follow in the word for the purpose of knowing the one who intended us to read it and hear, lest we be like the people of the world and a people destined for destruction. For what good is it to have if you do not use. Are there not enough of those that lack that which you already have? Neither forsake the gift of grace which is found within the precious increments of time that we have been given to do the truth, and by doing know the truth, and by knowing the truth be set free. If you have, give, for if you lack you will also receive much in due time after having realized that which you truly need. All praise be to God the Most High Sovereign and King of Kings. Let no tradition withhold you from HIM.
