James 2:12-13

James 2_12-13.jpg

Speak and act as those who are going to be judged by the law that gives freedom, because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgment. - James 2:12-13

Dear Jesus,

You have freed me from the Ten Commandments as a my source of strength.  You have replaced it with love that drives me to keep all commandments with deep meaning and significant purpose.  I strongly desire to love others and you so much that I feel free from the law with its demands and threats.  I just want to do the right thing.  This came from you who saved me and gave me peace from fear of judgement or punishment.  It is the "law" that gives freedom to me.  You are in my life and my mind driving me to be a loving person.  Keep me merciful and humble by your Holy Spirit who lives here with me while you are in heaven watching over all things for my good. 

Amen

Goodness is a force from God living in the heart of everyone who has his grace giving Spirit.
