ALL OR NONE


James 2:10


"For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it." NIV


"For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all." KJV


We cannot for one minute think that it is all right to engage in a small sin that doesn't appear to be of any significance in the grand scheme of things. We cannot even give sin a rank of greater or smaller. Sin is sin. Love is the sum total of all the Law - it is all about love. If we harbor any resentment, ill will, or prejudice against any person, place, or thing, we have fully announced that we do not love God. We can call on God to help us when we fall short. We can keep from breaking the law of Christ's love by examining ourselves, staying alert, and turning our backs on those things that are inconsistent with the law of love.


Heavenly Father, we cannot accomplish keeping the law of Love without your help. Help us to examine ourselves, to stay alert, and to turn our back on those things that we know are not consistent with Your ways. We ask this in Jesus' name. Amen.

Without love we have nothing. Everyday I think of how the love of Jesus and His blood covers all of my sin. Like the old hymnal..."Nothing but the blood of Jesus". God bless, Lloyd
