Since Jesus blesses the poor in spirit, those who live in His Kingdom must pursue personal and public peace.
Christ tells us that true blessedness comes from both the hearing and the keeping of God's word. God has revealed himself to us throughout scripture and has called us to examine His word, store it in our hearts, and live according to the example that Christ has set. When we do keep His word, we become a light in the midst of darkness, revealing the knowledge of His righteousness and love to all.
We are to be "swift to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger." "Slow to speak" means being careful about the promises we make so that we are sure to keep them.
In the midst of cultural challenges and interpersonal conflict as Christians, James steps in to give us guidance from the gospel of Jesus. Much of our strife comes from the recurring pull to think too highly of ourselves, to be quick to give our opinions, to even be angry in giving them at times. This creates division among people and James calls us to 'be quick to hear, slow to speak' and he encourages us to do two things 1) Listen to one another and 2) Listen to God through his gospel and scriptures. In this text James calls us to devotion to God, rather than to devotion to ourselves. He shares how we deceive ourselves and the damage it causes, and he calls us to be devoted to what God is devoted to, to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world. Through all of this, he calls us to remember the gospel, the implanted word, able to save our souls.
The events recorded, the laws given, the images portrayed, and the worship inaugurated in the book of Exodus are foundational to the gospel – the message that Jesus delivers people from the slavery of sin. In the same manner that God delivered His people from slavery in Egypt, He delivers them from the slavery of sin.
Hearing God's voice gives us:Wisdom, Comfort, Relationship building, Direction, and Increased faith.
