9/11/14 Daily Devotion

James 2:11 For he who said, “Do not commit adultery,” also said, “Do not murder.” If you do not commit adultery but do commit murder, you have become a lawbreaker.

James moves on in this verse to offer a clear understanding of the previous. He wants his readers, he wants us, to understand that we cannot work our way out of a complete, truthful, understanding of sin and the law of God. In his example for us, James demonstrates that following one law and rejecting another makes a person guilty of sinning. In others words, as he has already stated, keeping one aspect of the law and rejecting another is a sin in the eyes of God. Why? Does it really matter? Of course it matters. How can we claim to love God but choose to follow only the regulations that do not interfere with our wishes and/or desires?

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me have the strength and courage to follow all of Your decrees.
