James 2:10 is kind of sobering it says: “For the person who keeps all of the laws except one is as guilty as a person who has broken all of God’s laws.” This kinda shows us how perfect we would have to be to be accepted by God. We see that if we have ever done anything wrong, if we’ve ever told a lie, ever said something unkind, ever lusted after someone, or anything else that is considered sin, that we are as guilty as a person who has broken all of God’s laws.
This shows us that we all need a saviour because we have fallen short. We couldn’t be good enough to be accepted by God. No amount of good work can make up for the fact that our sin separated us from God. Even the smallest sin, the tiniest of white lies was enough to keep us from God.
Here is the good news! God wasn’t okay with that. He wanted us to be able to know Him. So He did what we couldn’t do. He sent His son to pay the price our sin deserved which was death. That’s why now, if we’ve accepted Jesus as our saviour, we are considered righteous. So take a moment today and thank God for making you righteous and taking away your sins through His death!
Lets Holla @ God
God today I’m in need of you. I have broken your laws, I have lied and done unkind things. God help me accept me and forgive me. Thank you for dying. I love you in Jesus’ name Amen!
