Why God Gave The 10 Commandments

Deuteronomy 5:1-12

Hi GAMErs,

Rather than glossing over them, take a good look at the ten commandments God laid down, which Moses recorded in Exodus 20 and restates here in Deuteronomy 5:6-21:

1. You shall have no other gods before me (v6-7)
2. You shall not make an idol out of anything and worship it (v8-10)
3. You shall not misuse the Lord's name (v11)
4. Observe the Sabbath day by resting every 7 days (v12-15)
5. Honour your father and mother (v16)
6. Do not murder (v17)
7. Do not commit adultery (v18)
8. Do not steal (v19)
9. Do not spread lies and false rumours about others (v20)
10.  Do not covet what belongs to your neighbour (v21)

Which of these commandments do you struggle the most to keep? 

Keep in mind the reason God gave us these commandments: it wasn't to limit our freedom or to kill our joy, but to protect us from getting hurt and from hurting others.  God's commandments are not prison bars, but guardrails on a highway to keep us from falling into the ditch.

There's another reason God gave us these commandments.  It's to show us that God's standards are perfect, we are not (see Matthew 5:21-30) and we need a Saviour.  Praise God.  Jesus Christ is that Saviour.  Jesus fulfilled all of God's commandments perfectly on our behalf, and then He died to pay for our sins.  Thus in Jesus Christ we find not just the fulfillment of God's laws but our rescue from God's laws too.
