SCRIPTURE LESSON FOR TODAY

SCRIPTURE LESSON FOR TODAY

James 5:9 “Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door.”

COMMENTARY

“Grudge”, in the verse above, means to murmur. God does not like murmuring. He does not like anyone holding a grudge either. He says, when you come to the altar, forgive others first, and then come to the altar.

James pictured Christ as a judge about to open the doors to the courtroom and convene His court. Knowing that the strain of persecution could lead to grumbling, James cautioned his readers against the sin (Philippians 2:14), lest they forfeit their full reward (2 John 8).

Judge not, that ye be not judged. Whatever judgment you make on others, is the same judgment God will use on you. The Lord Jesus is the Judge that standeth at the door. He is the True Judge.

HAVE A BLESSED DAY!!!!
