The Ten Commandments 2015-03-08

Before God gave the Ten Commandments, he spoke the Gospel. Without the Gospel, we cannot keep the Ten Commandments. We will unfailingly break them and they will unfailingly condemn us. With the Gospel and with the faith generated by the Gospel, the Commandments’ effect changes. Because Jesus kept the Law perfectly, our record is clean. Because the Law condemned Jesus, it can no longer condemn us. Now the Commandments provide for us a reminder of our deep need for Jesus as our Savior, and they provide a guide for us to follow.
