Guilty (James 2:8-11)

- The royal law is linked to James 2:5 ("Has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith and to inherit the kingdom He promised those who love Him?") The royal law is for the heirs of God's Kingdom. By showing partiality to the rich, they're not fulfilling the royal law of loving their neighbor as themselves.
- If we truly love others as ourselves...love them like Jesus...love them with God's unconditional love, we won't show favoritism which is sin.
- A person who follows all of God's law but fails to obey even one command is guilty of breaking all the commands in the law. Transgression of one is a breach of the whole. How grateful I am for God's grace! Even if we have kept all the 10 commandments, who among us can say that they have never failed or stumbled at the two greatest commandments ("Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength" and "Love your neighbor as yourself")?
