Commandments


“The Ten Commandments, the heart of God’s law, are just as applicable today as they were 3,000 years ago because they proclaim a lifestyle endorsed by God. They are the perfect expression of who God is and how He wants people to live.” (Life Application Study Bible, Deuteronomy 4:8)

“The Cross points vertically as a reminder that we are to love God, and horizontally, as a reminder that we are to love each other. Christ commanded this and we cannot have, nor do, one without the other…when you consider the order of the Ten Commandments, the first four instruct us how to worship God, the fifth one instructs us to honor our parents, and the final five are about how we should treat each other. This ties the ten commandments to the cross and what Christ says are the greatest commandments in a way that make sense for many and serves as a good reminder to remember its above loving each other too as well as God.” (Sacramental Living Podcast)

"The Holy Spirit’s presence is vital for every Christian who struggles to keep the Lord’s commandments and cope with the realities of loving others..." (Dynamis 5/10/2014)

"Unfortunately, because God’s commandments are not easy to keep (due to our own sins and weaknesses), we are apt to dismiss them as unrealistic and idealistic. We also tend to think of them as negative burdens rather than as positive opportunities." (Archimandrite Vassilios Papavassiliou)

“We benefit each time we apply one of God’s commandments to our lives.” (Dynamis 3/6/2015)
