873 Judgment vs Liberty - James 2-12• 5 min
Do you obey the law? If not, which laws do you break? "So speak and so act as those who are to be judged under the law of liberty." James 2:12 ESV James mentions this twice. Check out James 1:25, also. If we judge others under the law of liberty, what are we to correct? You almost need the verses before this to put it in perspective, so check out the previous 4 podcasts or so. James is making a contrast to the Law of Israel. Not just the 10 commandments, but all the rules and observances. That was the law of sin and death. Now we have a new law. The commandments all boiled off to love God and love people. (Matthew 22:36-40; Mark 12:28-31 and Luke 10:25-28). James is reminding his readers that our goal is to speak and act (live) according to these principles. Today, how can we speak and act according to the law of liberty? Let's remember our 5 daily habits, 1) Pray, 2) Appreciate others 3) Know what we believe, 4) Serve others, and 5) Speak for ourselves. What can we do today? What can we say today. Remember when you're around the people you see regularly, find a way to serve them that can't be explained. Do an excellent job. Help them with their job. Get your work done early so you can help them. Go out of your way to trust Jesus by serving the people you interact with. Ask God to give you the ideas. Then consider joining a community of believers who want this to be the trademark of their life. We want our daily life to count for eternity, all seven days.

The more people you have around you serving others because they follow Jesus, the more likely you will be to do that too. You know it will work. Take the first step.
