October 5th News- The First Commandment

Series: The Heart of the 10 Commandments


This week we will look at the first commandment found in Exodus 20:2-3:

“I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.

“You shall have no other gods before me.

This is a pretty clear directive, isn’t it? But it is challenging as well.

How can obey this commandment. How does Jesus fulfill it (remember, last Sunday we saw that Jesus came not to abolish the law, but to fulfill it). These are important questions to ponder.

To prepare, read Exodus 20 again. Also read Exodus 3. This is the story of God appearing to Moses in the burning bush- and it will shed light (pun intended!) on the first commandment.

So what’s the deal? Why did God give them to us? What do they mean?


We will return to our normal service time of 9:15 am.

Looking forward to Sunday!


Grace and peace,
