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

– James 2:10 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

One of the roles of the law is to remind us of our great need for grace. We all stumble in one way or another, but this passage tells us that a white lie makes us as guilty before God as murder. Don’t be deceived—the God of the universe is a holy God. That is why He sent Jesus. The only one who can stand before God unblemished is God Himself. The Law faithfully reminds us of our need for a Savior.
