John 14-15

THOUGHT OF THE DAY

May 20,2020

Matthew 22:35-40 AMP
[35] One of them, a lawyer [an expert in Mosaic Law], asked Jesus a question, to test Him: [36] “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” [37] And Jesus replied to him, ” ‘YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND.’ [38] This is the first and greatest commandment. [39] The second is like it, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF [that is, unselfishly seek the best or higher good for others].’ [40] The whole Law and the [writings of the] Prophets depend on these two commandments.”

James 2:8-13 AMP
[8] If, however, you are [really] fulfilling the royal law according to the Scripture, “YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF [that is, if you have an unselfish concern for others and do things for their benefit]” you are doing well. [9] But if you show partiality [prejudice, favoritism], you are committing sin and are convicted by the Law as offenders. [10] For whoever keeps the whole Law but stumbles in one point, he has become guilty of [breaking] all of it. [11] For He who said, “DO NOT COMMIT ADULTERY,” also said, “DO NOT MURDER.” Now if you do not commit adultery, but you murder, you have become guilty of transgressing the [entire] Law. [12] Speak and act [consistently] as people who are going to be judged by the law of liberty [that moral law that frees obedient Christians from the bondage of sin]. [13] For judgment will be merciless to one who has shown no mercy; but [to the one who has shown mercy] mercy triumphs [victoriously] over judgment.
