New Series: 10 Commandments

We've kicked off a New Series on the 10 Commandments here at Mercy Church on Sundays called "A Fresh Look". I am sure many of you are familiar with the 10 Commandments, but I would guess you can only recite a handful of the more popular ones, i.e. Don't Steal, Don't Lie, Do No Commit Adultery, etc. Honestly, I only knew 8 off the top of my head, I just couldn't remember the last two!

All that said, these 10 Commandments "statements" that God gave to Moses for the people of Israel are not something only for people back in the days of Moses, but they are relevant to those of us living here in the year 2011.

I hope you will join us for this series that will be sure to strengthen your heart, encourage your soul and feed your mind!

There is one thing to remember and that is God will not love you more if you live according to the 10 Commandments! He loves you right now, right where you are, and just how you are! Though like any good father, He wants you and I to grow in righteousness and mature in our faith!

This series is not about "Abiding By The 10 Commandments," it's about understanding the meaning behind them, and how Jesus came to fulfill them and how He has empowered us to live the life He died to give us!

Galatians 2:16 And yet we Jewish Christians know that we become right with God, not by doing what the law commands, but by faith in Jesus Christ. So we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be accepted by God because of our faith in Christ and not because we have obeyed the law. For no one will ever be saved by obeying the law.”
