Ten Commandments

Faithfulness, the Church, and Marriage (Exodus 20:14)

"You shall not commit adultery." This commandment seems straight forward enough. When we look deeper, we see a beautiful relationship that God has called us to– a relationship that is modeled after His love for us. If you would like to watch the video in the sermon, it can be found here. You can also read Ian and Larissa's blog here:

The Revealed God (Exodus 20:16)

Why do we have The Ten Commandments? Many answer, "They tell us what not to do." Yes, but there is a deeper reason. The Ten Commandments tell us who God is. They proclaim a God who loves His people.

Awe Confused (Exodus 20:17)

We wrap up our series today on The Ten Commandments. This is the only commandment that is repeated- "You shall not covet."

Time in God's Name (Exodus 20:8-11)

Today we wrap up the first four commandments. These commandments are sometime called 'The Vertical Table'. They provide us a roadmap for attuning our life to God's. In the fourth commandment, we learn that God cares about our time and our rest.

'Hallowed Be Thy Name' (Exodus 20:7)

The third commandment is deeper than merely not using the Lord's name as a curse word. We are God's people and our worship and ethics must align with God's story.

Between You and God (Exodus 20:4-6)

The second commandment is"You shall not make for yourself a carved image." In many traditions, this commandment is coupled with the first commandment, "You shall have no other gods." At first glance these commandments seem redundant, until we understand that God knows us and our desire to worship. The question is, do we worship our Creator or the idols of this world?

No Other (Exodus 20:1-3)

Today we begin our series on the Ten Commandments. The commandments begin with a foundational commandment, "You shall have no other gods before me." What does it mean to have no other gods?
