Sioux Falls Gratia Wednesday Service "The Ten Commandments"

sola gratia

 

On Wednesday June 8, 2016 at 7:00 PM the message "The Ten Commandments" was given by Minister Christine Lee at Gratia Community Church in Sioux Falls, SD.  The message was taken from Exodus 20:1-21 and Matthew 22:34-40.

This is the chapter of the Bible where God gives Moses the Ten Commandments and lays them out in detail.  When these are read one cannot help but see how much civilization is based on them.  There is no mistaking the authority of an almighty God in this passage.

Christine shared the first five of the Commandments have to do with man's relationship to God, and the last five have more to do with man's relationship to man.  This is what Jesus was encapsulating when he talked about all the commandments being summed up in loving God and loving your neighbor.  Another difference between the first passage and the second passage is the first ones are about what not to do and the second ones are about what to do.  Christine then went on to talk about each Commandment more in depth.

All the members at this service reflected on how at least one of the Commandments could be applied better in their life.
