I can remember when I was very legalistic about my personal relationship with The Lord.

The Ten Commandments seemed impossible to achieve. It seemed the harder I tried the more I proved that I wasn’t good enough to reach Heaven. That was the devils lying like He always does. He didn’t want me to know that God Loves me no matter where I am at.

Remember The Ten Commandments

But that doesn’t mean if you make a mistake you are going to Hell! Don’t believe those legalistic people and churches that preach that. If that were true, Jesus would not have been crucified for us to receive grace. I sure wouldn’t want to be the one that has to stand before our Lord and say, “You made a mistake by being crucified.”

20 zAnd aGod spoke all these words, saying,

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

3 c“You shall have no other gods before1me.

4 d“You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. 5 eYou shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am fa jealous God, gvisiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me, 6 but showing steadfast love to thousands2 of those who love me and keep my commandments.

7 h“You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.

8 i“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 jSix days you shall labor, and do all your work, 10 but the kseventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the lsojourner who is within your gates. 11 For min six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

12 n“Honor your father and your mother, othat your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.

13 p“You shall not murder.3

14 q“You shall not commit adultery.

15 r“You shall not steal.

16 s“You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

17 t“You shall not covet uyour neighbor’s house; vyou shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male servant, or his female servant, or his ox, or his donkey, or anything that is your neighbor’s.”

18 Now when all the people saw wthe thunder and the flashes of lightning and the sound of the trumpet and the mountain smoking, the people were afraid4 and trembled, and they stood far off 19 and said to Moses, x“You speak to us, and we will listen; but do not let God speak to us, lest we die.” 20 yMoses said to the people, “Do not fear, for God has come to ztest you, that the fear of him may be before you, that you may not sin.” 21 The people stood far off, while Moses drew near to the athick darkness where God was.
