The Law of God
“I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.” Exodus 20:2 (NIV)
The 10 Commandments were given to a people redeemed from bondage that they may now live accordingly and not like they are still in bondage. When we have fallen at the foot of the Cross and have seen our sin in the nailed scared hands of the Savior, we will rightly understand the law as the reflection of God’s righteous character. Though our sinful hearts fail to measure up, we plead the promise of grace and the power of the Holy Spirit.
We serve a Lord of law and order, not one of changing feelings or questionable temperament that leaves us guessing about His mood. In the 10 Commandments we see the behavior standard the Spirit of God is seeking to build in our lives.
Let’s pray today that we grow in grace and in a relationship with God’s Spirit so we uphold His law in our lives.
