God’s commandments and Jesus

God’s Commandments:

commandmentsAnd God spoke all these words (to the people of Israel in the dessert):

“I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.

“You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything…. You shall not bow down to them or worship them…

“You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.

“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. On it you shall not do any work… For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

“Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.

“You shall not murder.

“You shall not commit adultery.

“You shall not steal.

“You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.

“You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”

~ edited verses from Exodus 20:1-17

Jesus and the commandments:

Jesus“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” ~ Matthew 22:36-40

know that a person is not justified by the works of the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ.    ~ Galatians 2:16a
