The heart and purpose behind the 10 Commandments (or the 10 “statements”) are still potent and relevant to us today. Take a moment and imagine what our society would look like if everyone obeyed just these 10 statements… that would be a nice place to live wouldn’t it?
Though we are not under the Law because of grace, that does not mean that we are free to disregard the Law. Paul states that the Law is Holy, and Jesus said that He did not come to abolish the Law, but to fulfill it. The “Law” is a glimpse in to the heart of the Law-giver. It is God’s moral code for His people, and it is as applicable today as it was over three thousand years ago.
