faith comes by hearingand children are welcome
— Romans 10.17 —
The Law of God points us to the Son of God. God's Law convicts us of our sin. It can not save us, but it can sanctify us. We need God's Law to show us what is right, what is wrong, and what is needed. God's Law drives us to Jesus Christ for salvation. What about you? Do you honor your parents? Do you value human life? Do you honor marital faithfulness? Do you steward God's resources? Are you honest? Are you content? Sometimes, perhaps, but not all the time. You see, we are law-breakers. Jesus, however, is our law-keeper. He keeps God's Law for us. Have you thanked Jesus for keeping God's Law for you? Have you asked God's Spirit to empower you to keep God's Law? If not, today is your day!
12 “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.
13 “You shall not murder.
14 “You shall not commit adultery.
15 “You shall not steal.
16 “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
17 “You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his male servant, or his female servant, or his ox, or his donkey, or anything that is your neighbor's.”
