God has spoken: “Thou shalt have no other gods before me.”. In this article, we consider the First Commandment in six simple propositions…
We are bound not only by duty but also by gratitude to keep the commandments.
Christ shows us how to keep the commandments and how to love. He shows us that it is possible to keep the law perfectly and to love perfectly.
The Moral Law alone is applicable to all men, in every place and at all times.
Because the moral law has been given, all men are liable to be judged, and all men are guilty before God.
Though God requires of us perfect obedience, we can never be saved by our perfect obedience. Thank God for Christ Jesus our Lord who kept God’s revealed will for us perfectly.
The resurrection is part of the redemptive plan of God that centres on the Lord Jesus Christ. It is an inviolable fact that believers who die will rise again one day.
Let us learn to give much attention to the cultivation of the health of our soul as we wait upon the Lord for the day when our soul will be perfected for the glory of Christ.
The Lord is ready to bless every one of His children with assurance of God’s love, peace of conscience, joy in the Holy Ghost, increase of grace, and perseverance therein to the end.
Now, this is precisely what sanctification is about. It is essentially dying unto sin and growing in Christ-likeness!
