“Are The Ten Commandments Of God Still Valid In Our Life?”

11 04 2011

Greetings to you I bring my dear friends in the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ Our Redeemer! Dear friends, as we look at today’s article, does the “Ten Commandments of God Still Valid or is it Void in our Lives?” Let us check it out friends!

Dearly beloved friends, in regard to the above question,” God’s Ten commandments are still valid because Jesus Christ declared them to be. We are still called by God to honor the Ten Commandments and obey what they call us to do. Jesus Christ also told us that obeying the Law or the Ten Commandments is not just a superficial act, but one that carries the essence of the law into our thoughts and hearts!” This my friends calls for “obedience.” How obedient have we been in following and keeping the Ten Commandments that is compulsory and required by God, Today!

These Ten Commandments are good basic laws that will keep us right before God and also keeps us out of trouble with ourselves, families, our friends and neighbors! God knows what is best for all of us and He simply wants all of us to stay out of trouble in order that we may be able to live in peace and harmony with Him and with all mankind regardless of their race and religion! Many of us friends, take for granted and we really do not realize the “power” and “authority” that is in these “Ten Commandments” of God!

Dear friends, have we ever wondered why God gave these commandments to Moses, when he went up to meet the Lord Almighty on Mount Sinai? Moses was there forty days and forty nights taking down the commandments that God was giving him. There were many commandments and laws that God was giving to Moses but God only concentrated on the Ten Commandments, why? There must be something special in that commandments! God inscribed the Ten Commandments on two tablets with His finger of fire! That is why God’s words Today are like “Fire” burning within our hearts! God saw how unholy the people of Israel were when Moses brought them out of slavery from Egypt! They indulged themselves into many sinful acts of activities when Moses went up Mount Sinai to meet God, my friends!

Today, my friends if you go to any Christian homes, there will be “The Ten Commandments” framed and hung on the walls of their homes! Again my friends, let us not just hang this commandments of God on the wall to beautify the wall but to make sure that these commandments are framed into our hearts and that it will beautify our spiritual inner being! Let us take a serious look at the Ten Commandments, my friends and if we have obeyed or not obeyed the commandments!  The 1st commandment,”I am the Lord your God who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery, and You shall have no other gods before me! Here God is saying that He is the only” God” and they are not to have any other “gods” before Him! God saw that the heart of the people were becoming so sinful and they were already planning in their hearts to lust after other “gods.” These people saw that there were many “gods” in Egypt and started to plan in their hearts to make idols of worship! That is when God gave the 2nd commandment in line,”You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of “anything” in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below! You are not to bow down and worship them, for I, the Lord your God is a jealous God punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments! So my friends, we are to be very careful in obeying the commandments of God because there is curse and a blessing that follows the 2nd commandment!

The 3rd commandment, “You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God,for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name! Again a word of warning, of how we use God’s name. The 4th commandment. “Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy Six days you shall labor and do all your work but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God! Friends, how many of us are not resting on the Sabbath day and still going on with our work and business dealings! Why can’t we give that day to God because for six days He has given you strength to work, why not give God that one day for you to attend church! The 5th commandment comes with a promise, “Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land your God is giving you! Children be aware! It is a commandment from God to honor your parents. The 6th commandment, “You shall not murder.” So friends, if you are angry with someone and wants to take revenge by murdering that person, Stop! Because it is a commandment from God not to murder anyone and stain your hands!

The 7th commandment in line,”You shall not commit adultery.” Yes, my friends! “You don’t have to carry out the act of adultery on that person! If you lust with your eyes and within your heart you have already committed the act of adultery just by your sight and thought! Guard your thoughts for God knows every thought of yours! The 8th commandment,”You shall not steal.” The 9th commandment, “You shall not bare false witness against your neighbor!” The 10th commandment, “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house, wife or anything that belongs to your neighbor!” So friends, these are the commandments of God! Have we abide and obeyed them or are they void in your life Today? Think about it my friends. Have a Blessed Lent Season.

God Bless.
