Still Valid

Try as we might, we can’t get away from the Ten Commandments because they are also stated in the New Testament. We know this because Jesus says “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. “(Matthew 5:17, KJV)

  1. Have no other Gods before me (Exodus 20:2-3, Matthew 4:10)
  2. Do not worship idols. (Exodus 20:4-6, 1Cor 10:14)
  3. Don’t use the Lord’s name in vain. (Exodus 20:7, 1Timothy 6:1)
  4. Remember the Sabbath to keep it holy. (Exodus 20:8-11, Luke 6:5)
  5. Honour your parents. (Exodus 20:12, Ephesians 6:1-3)
  6. Do not kill. (Exodus 20:13, Mark 10:19)
  7. Do not commit adultery. (Exodus 20:14, Matthew 5:27-28)
  8. Do not steal. Exodus 20:15, Ephesians 4:28)
  9. Do not covet. (Exodus 20:17, Luke 12:15)
  10. Do not bear false witness. (Exodus 20:16, Mark 10:19)

Prayer – Lord, Help us to love you and also to love our neighbour as ourselves, for in that we sum up the law and the prophets! Amen (From Matthew 22:38-40)
