“The Holy God Saves His People”

One mistake we often make in studying the Ten Commandments (Ten Words) is we fail to see the Gospel in them. We fail to see the good news of the Law. Therefore, we should not skip over the first two verses of Exodus 20. God reminds Israel that He is the God who brought them out of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. God saves us to give us the ability to obey His Law. We, as Paul reminds us in Galatians 4, must never believe the Law saves us or make the Law a burden by adding to it. The Law shows us we need Someone else to fulfill it since we cannot fulfill it ourselves but are condemned by it. The freedom to obey the Law was given to us by God saving us through Christ Jesus. This should bring us great joy because even when we fail in our obedience we are still saved through Christ’s obedience.
