    The Ten Commandments are not just rules to be obeyed, but a Law that must be fulfilled. Jesus came to fulfill the Law, and by doing so, transformed how the Law operates in the lives of God’s people. Today’s message will focus on the command against murder. The Commandment is a call to protect and preserve human life. And this Commandment finds its ultimate fulfillment in Christ, who gives us eternal life.

    The Ten Commandments are not just rules to be obeyed, but a Law that must be fulfilled. Jesus came to fulfill the Law, and by doing so, transformed how the Law operates in the lives of God’s people. Today’s message will focus on the command to honor your parents. This commandment also stretches to include all in authority over us. Including God. Christ reconciles us to His Father, so God becomes our Father. And we live to glorify our Father.

    The Ten Commandments are not just rules to be obeyed, but a Law that must be fulfilled. Jesus came to fulfill the Law, and by doing so, transformed how the Law operates in the lives of God’s people. Today’s message will focus on keeping the Sabbath holy. Of all the Ten Commandments, this is the one most Christians believe does not apply to us. But in Christ, this Commandment still has much to teach believers today. Sabbath rest is found both in creation and redemption.

    The Ten Commandments are not just rules to be obeyed, but a Law that must be fulfilled. Jesus came to fulfill the Law, and by doing so, transformed how the Law operates in the lives of God’s people. Today’s message will focus on the third commandment, which forbids taking the Lord’s Name in vain. It’s not just a command against saying certain curse words. There are many ways to dishonor the Name of God. Like all of the commands, this one finds its true fulfillment in Christ.

    The Ten Commandments are not just rules to be obeyed, but a Law that must be fulfilled. Jesus came to fulfill the Law, and by doing so, transformed how the Law operates in the lives of God’s people. Today’s message will focus on the second commandment, which forbids making any image or likeness of God or any heavenly being or earthly creature to worship. How far does this commandment apply? And how has Jesus fulfilled it?

    Are the Ten Commandments a relic of a bygone era? Good memory verses for Sunday School, but with little relevance to the spiritual life of mature Christians? Or are they necessary foundations of faith that still serve a valid role for guiding our lives–and more importantly, leading us to Christ?

    In a time when our culture is deluged with bizarre conspiracy theories, Christians should remember not to buy into them whenever we see a rainbow.
