Ten Commandments 3-30-09

Today I am starting a new series as I am sure you notice called the Ten Commandments. The commandments are so important for Christians. The first reason is it is a guide by which God has given us to live our lives by. I hope each day you will examine yourself and see how you are doing in lining up to God's commands. The second reason is it is a great witnessing tool. When you tell somebody about Jesus if we will take them through the 10 commandments it easy to show that person how we have broken every commandment and need redemption through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

So lets look at some scripture.

Jesus said..."Do not think that I came to destroy the law or the prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. Matt.5:17

Jesus said..."Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven." Matt.5:19

I have heard many folks over the years make comments that we are not under the law anymore but under grace...which is true and it is false. Let me explain. We are still to live by the Ten Commandments and some other commandments that Jesus gave but we are also not held by the old sacrificial systemwhich was part of the law as Jesus replaced that by the ULTIMATE sacrifice....Himself on the cross for our sin.

I have not found any place in the Bible that tells us that the ten commandments are null and void. I believe we should look at them often. It should help us strive to keep our lives in order. It should also humble us daily as we see how often we fall short of what God expects from His people. Jesus Christ was fulfillment of the ten commandments as He is the ONLY ONE who ever kept the commandments perfectly.

So I hope you will join me as we look at each commandment and examine our lives to see how well we are holding up the Word of God.

God bless you my friends...Tom

p.s....I am posting this on Sunday for Monday as I will be on vacation tomorrow!

Ten Commandments #1 3-31-09

Good Tuesday morning everyone. I had an amazing day yesterday! I killed my first turkey. It was a great morning and I just praise God for allowing me to enjoy a beautiful morning and to harvest a bird. I hope you had a good day yesterday too!

Now for the devotion.

Commandment number one says: "I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the house of bondage."

I wonder if it bothered God to have to tell us that He is God?? I have a hard time understanding how people can deny the that there is a God. It seems to me if people will just open their eyes it easy to see God all around us. Creation itself shouts praises to the Creator God! So not only did God feel it was important to remind us He is Our God but He also need to remind us what He has done for us. Israel needed to be reminded what He had done by bringing them out of the bondage of slavery in Egypt and now was going to be lead to the promise land although this generation would not make it the next would. God has brought us out of bondage too! If you have received forgiveness of your sin through the blood of Jesus Christ you have been freed from the slavery of sin!! Thank you Jesus!!! I hope and pray God doesn't have to remind us of that very often! Now God is leading us to the promise land, an eternity in heaven. Wow we are so unworthy. Thank you Jesus for making us worthy by your death on the cross.

I want to challenge you this morning to look at Israel's journey. Often we we laugh at the disobedience and laugh and say I can't believe they would turn their backs on God like that, but when we examine it closer we are just like them...stubborn and hardheaded! It is a shame God has to remind us of Himself but it is a blessing He loves us enough to do so!!!

Have a great day in the Lord!!!

Tom

What do you suppose Ephesians 2:15 means which it says

"by abolishing in his flesh the law with its commandments and regulations..."

tricky tricky... Sometimes it is hard to get a clear understanding of the bible without looking at the entire context to get the full picture.

Romans 7:6
"But now, by dying to what once bound us, we have been released from the law so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit, and not in the old way of the written code."

I am in no way saying that the 10 commandments are null and void, and I think there is much to be learned from them, but I do think they were written to a specific audience, the Israelites.

just a thought. not an argument. I appreciate you taking the time to write these devotionals.

God Bless!

Paul
