Believers are those who have been born again by the Word of Truth. Formerly, as Alistair Begg reminds us, we were dead in our sins, but God has taken the initiative in giving us new life. The instrument of our new birth is the Gospel, to which James urges us to listen. We must learn to be quiet and hear the Word of God, receiving it by faith, since it both gives us life and transforms our life.
