A Chain of Ten Links

Adrian Rogers

JULY 20

“For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.” – James 2:10

So many people have the idea that God is going to grade on the curve. We say to ourselves, “We’re bad, but we’re not as bad as so-and-so.”

But God doesn’t grade on a curve. He grades on an absolute standard of holiness. Can anybody say that they’ve kept all of God’s Ten Commandments? Of course not. But let’s suppose you had only broken one. What would happen? Well, let me illustrate. If a man was dangling over a fire by a chain of ten links and nine of those links were made of forged steel and one was made of crepe paper, what would happen?

Use this illustration with someone today as a testimony of God’s mercy in sending His Son for the salvation of all mankind.
