The Bible says that we can miss God’s mark of perfection with our thoughts, words, or deeds. In commission (what we’ve done wrong) and omission (what we ought to have done right). Imagine if you’ve only sinned 10, no 5, no just 3x per day in though, word and deed (commission and/or omission). You’d be a walking angel. But that’s 1,000 sins per year. Think of your age right now, multiply that by 1000. That’s a lot of sin. What would happen to an habitual offender in a criminal court with that kind of a record?

James 2:10 For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles in one point, he has become guilty of all (NASB).


How many cracks in a window make a broken window? ONE.

You don’t have to break every law in the book to have the police looking for you, one violation makes one a lawbreaker. Underline the words “one point” and circle “guilty.” If you’ve ever sinned – you’re guilty. One violation produces guilt.
