Scripture Time

James 2:8-13

8If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, "Love your neighbor as yourself,"[a] you are doing right. 9But if you show favoritism, you sin and are convicted by the law as lawbreakers. 10For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it. 11For he who said, "Do not commit adultery,"[b] also said, "Do not murder."[c] If you do not commit adultery but do commit murder, you have become a lawbreaker.
12Speak and act as those who are going to be judged by the law that gives freedom, 13because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgment!

Well I think we are all guilty of breaking the law. We can strive to be perfect, but we all know we will fall short. That's why we have and need a saviour. The last verses are saying that we need to show mercy to others. Clear up anything I messed up!!!!

Father~ Thank you for Jesus. Thank you for sacrificing him for us. We don't deserve it, but I do appreciate what it means for us. In your name Amen.

I love my e-sword program... I looked this up. I wanted to know what 9 meant. And basically that verse and 12, is saying if we don't pay attension to the law and then break it, we are looped right in the same category as a lawbreaker. Breaking any of it, is breaking all of it. If we pay attension to the law, and know that those things point out our sin, we can concider this a freedom, because He helps point out those sins, and then also points out His mercy. Because we DO fall short. What a disappointing life, if we payed no attension to the law, OR payed so much attension to it that we forget that we have been washed clean of all of those sins by Jesus!
