James 2:10 (Listen)
10 For whoever keeps the whole law but fails in one point has become guilty of all of it.
Hymn: TLH 289, st. 1,3,4: The Law Commands and Makes Us Know
1. The Law commands and makes us know
What duties to our God we owe;
But ’tis the Gospel must reveal
Where lies our strength to do his will.
3. What curses doth the Law denounce
Against the man who fails but once!
But in the Gospel Christ appears,
Pardoning the guilt of numerous years.
4. My soul, no more attempt to draw
Thy life and comfort from the Law
Fly to the hope the Gospel gives;
The man that trusts the promise lives.
