“I am the Lord your God... “You shall have no other gods before Me.
“You shall not make for yourself any idol… [as an object to worship]…
“You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain [that is, irreverently, in false affirmations or in ways that impugn the character of God]… ”Remember the Sabbath (seventh) day to keep it holy (set apart, dedicated to God)…
“Honor (respect, obey, care for) your father and your mother, …
”You shall not commit murder (unjustified, deliberate homicide).
“You shall not commit adultery.
“You shall not steal [secretly, openly, fraudulently, or through carelessness].
”You shall not testify falsely [that is, lie, withhold, or manipulate the truth] against your neighbour (any person).
“You shall not covet [that is, selfishly desire and attempt to acquire] … anything that belongs to your neighbour.” (Exo 20:2)
For thousands of years only one man was ever capable of blamelessly fulfilling ‘all’ the requirements of GOD’s law. And so, rather than lose his beloved creation to evil, he offered that one man (he offered himself), as the ultimate sacrifice for ‘our’ sins … !
“But Christ proved God’s passionate love for us by dying in our place while we were still lost and ungodly! And there is still much more to say of his unfailing love for us! For through the blood of Jesus we have heard the powerful declaration, “You are now righteous in my sight.” And because of the sacrifice of Jesus, you will never experience the wrath of God. So if while we were still enemies, God fully reconciled us to himself through the death of his Son, then something greater than friendship is ours. Now that we are at peace with God, and because we share in his resurrection life, how much more we will be rescued from sin’s dominion! And even more than that, we overflow with triumphant joy in our new relationship of living reconciled to God—all because of Jesus Christ!” (Rom 5:8)❤️
