What Are The Ten Commandments And Why They Should Matter To You?
Men gnawed their tongues in agony and cursed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, but they refused to repent of what they had done.
That scripture is taken from the New Testament Book of Revelations it describes just some of the punishment that awaits those who have failed to keep God's Law and turn from their sinful ways.
However, if you’re a good person and have never violated any of The Ten Commandments, right, then you shouldn’t have anything to worry about.
How Being A Good Person Can Cost You Your Life
The truth of the matter is, everyone falls short and the Ten Commandments are a mirror to expose the wickedness of our sins and why we need salvation.
No matter how good of a Christian you may think you are or how good you try to be, when you compare yourself to God’s standard, you’ll realize that you should be grateful for his mercy and grace that allows you to be forgiven for your trespasses.
More Of The Ten Commandments
Let’s take a brief look and see what Commandments most Christians seem to have the biggest problem obeying. "Thou shalt not steal," "Thou shalt not covet," and how about this one, "Thou shalt love thy fellow man as much as thou lovest thyself."
Maybe you truly avoid doing any wrong to your fellow man and you haven’t had a problem following any of these Commandments yet, then wait until we get to the remainder of them and you’ll see how good you really have been.
God’s designed the system and principles by which every Christians should live that are based on faith, trust and obedience to his word. The Bible states (Galations 3:24) the law was put in charge to lead us to Christ.
Why God's Law Should Matter To You
Jesus revealed to us, that no on can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again (John 3) and whoever rejects the Son will not enjoy eternal life, for God’s wrath remains on him.
Does it matter, whether the wrath of God is upon you? Don't settle for just being a good person when you can become a new creation?
