You Know the Commandments!” — WJD! for 07/16/2016

“{But I will answer your question.} You know the commands: ‘You must not murder anyone, you must not do the sin of adultery, you must not steal, you must not lie, you must not cheat, you must honor (respect) your father and mother …'” — Mark 10:19 (ERV)

Key Thought:

Do you know the commandments? Do you know the core teachings of God’s morality? If not, why not review them today. They can be found in Exodus 20. While we are not under law, but under grace, we are reminded that grace and the power of the Holy Spirit helps us to be what we could never be under law—people who live morally pleasing lives to God.

Today’s Prayer:

O holy and righteous Father, conform me to your character and write your moral will on my heart so that I can display it in my daily life. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

  1. Are we under old testament Law? The Law is now written in our hearts. All of the old testament Law that was pointing to Jesus was fulfilled by Him. But, the Law of morality which is God’s character are still in effect today. 9 of 10 Laws from the Ten commandments are to be followed but it is done because we want to. The Holy Spirit who dwells inside of us gives us these desires so, we obey not because we have to but because we desire to. Great post Julie….you continue to be a blessing.
