Week 2 – Love Your neighbor as Yourself

Commandments 4-10 


In Mark Chapter 12, Jesus sums up the Ten Commandments into two when he calls us to ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength,’ and to ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’  This week, we will continue to explore the commandments that involve loving our neighbor.

 

God’s Law, as found in the Ten Commandments, functions in three different ways for the Christian.  First, it acts as a curb.  When God commands us not to do something and we know that it is wrong, we are less likely to do it.  When we break God’s Laws despite knowing that it is wrong, the Law functions as a mirror – it convicts us of our sins and reminds us of our need for a Savior.  Now that we have been redeemed by Christ and He has paid for our sins, the Ten Commandments function as a guide for how we should live.  Instead of keeping them because we fear the consequences, we gladly keep them out of love for our Lord.
