Today we remember all those who fought and died—over 1 million men and women— for this country’s freedom. Because of their sacrifice, we are able to share our faith freely!
It’s also a time to remember the freedom we have in Jesus Christ—who died to set us free from sin!
And there is something else we need to remember: The 10 Commandments.
This is God’s moral law that demonstrates God’s standard of perfection, a standard we need to keep perfectly if we want to be in relationship to Him. Unfortunately, no one can live up to this standard, that is why Christ died for all the Commandments we have broken. Sin is transgression of the Law of God (1 John 3:4).
For those who share their faith, they need to use the 10 Commandments to show people where they have fallen short. The Commandments bring the knowledge of sin and stops sinners from justifying themselves that they are good enough to get to Heaven (Roman 3:19-20).
Sadly, the majority of Christians have never been taught to use the Commandments when sharing their faith, which leaves them impotent in their witness. Most Christians—indeed most people—do not even know the 10 Commandments.
This week, I am dedicating this blog’s postings to the 10 Commandments. We need to remember God’s standard. Memorial Day is a good day to start.
You will have the opportunity to see “The 10 Commandments Rap,” read “The Cajun 10 Commandments,” learn what evangelists of old thought about these Commandments in regard to giving the Gospel message, and you can even see a video of “The Atheist’s 10 Commandments.” Stay tuned…
