A disciple of Jesus Christ has received mercy from God. We deserved judgment but he saved us. Disciples of Jesus Christ are therefore merciful to others. Kent Hughes in his sermon on this text says, “The merciful person remembers his own sin and God's mercy to him, he understands the weaknesses of others, and he forgives.” People who judge others mercilessly not only have not received mercy from God, but as James reminds us, stand under God’s judgment.
