Marsha's Musings: Committing Sin Makes You a Sinner (James 2:8-9 KJV)

If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well: But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors. (James 2:8-9 KJV)

What would this world look like if we all obeyed this one law?  It would be a far better place than it is right now.  But the fact is, we all have sinned in this area at one or another in regard to other people, and this fact alone makes us all sinners before God in need of a Savior.  

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; (Romans 3:23 KJV)

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23 KJV)

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8 KJV)

I'm so thankful that God provided a way for peace with Him and eternal life.
