Remember, in His Word, God has:

  • Something to see – what does the text say
  • Something to understand – what does it mean
  • Something to apply – what does it mean to me
  • Something to praise – for what are you thankful?

Our Passages and Verses for this week focus on the Ten Commandments. How are Christians to consider these? It is clear from the Apostle Paul’s teaching that we cannot be justified by “works of the law (Galatians 2:16)”, but this does not imply we are not obligated toward God’s moral laws. As Christians we are freed from the bondage of sin, our “Exodus”, which allows us to freely live out the Ten Commandments, summarized by Jesus in Matthew 22:36-40.
