Re:Verse passage – Exodus 20:1-17 (day seven)
This week begins an exciting new study of the 10 commandments, and there are a couple of things I would like for you to do with me along the way:
- Since through much of the summer we will be studying a verse a week, and since the 10 Commandments are critical to our life as believers, I would like for us to memorize the text. I believe God will bless that effort and grow us more than we can imagine through a memorization exercise. We will start with Exodus 20:1-2 this week.
- As I study I am going to work through 4 questions for each commandment to help set a baseline for what we are looking for:
A. What is forbidden?
B. What is required of me?
C. What does this say about God’s character?
D. Where is this commandment referenced in the New Testament?
I hope you’ll do both with me through the summer and see how God uses them to grow us.
