The Last Six Commandments
Construction Zone 7: God's Law
What are the last six of the Ten Commandments in order as they are given in Exodus 20:12-17?
This Truth Makes
God’s Law is another way He reveals more to us about Himself. His Law shows us what kind of God He is. Would a good “god” command us to beat up people? How about if we had to serve a god who required that we be selfish and eat all the chocolate we want? How would you feel if your “god” commanded you to steal from other people? Would you have a very high opinion of that god’s character?
We can rejoice that God’s Law clearly shows us the spotless, perfect character of a loving and honorable God. God’s Law flows out of His holy, moral nature. We can love the Law because it shows us what it means to be perfect and reminds us Who the only truly perfect One is. The Law causes us to love God and to want to be more like His Son Jesus Christ.
