1. "And God spoke all these words, saying, 'I am the LORD your God, who brought you out the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. You shall have no other gods before me.'" (Exodus 20:1-3)
  2. God's intention through Israel's salvation is to create a new human race who will live in freedom like in the Garden of Eden.
  3. False gods are selected by broken people because they claim to bring power and success. God mercifully gathers broken people to restore them to life.
  4. "And God spoke all these words, saying, 'I am the LORD your God, who brought you out the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. You shall have no other gods before me.'" (Exodus 20:1-3)
  5. We like to think we can create our own purpose in life apart from God's will, but we run away from His commandments towards our re-enslavement.
  6. God's commandments reflect His character, whereby only He can fulfill the ​Law. The question is not what will help me but who will help me.
  7. “The most important [commandment] is, 'Hear, O Israel: The Lord your God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all you mind and with all your strength.'” (Mark 12:29-30)
  8. “Whoever keeps His commandments abides in God, and God in him. And by this we know that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us.” (1 John 3:24)
  9. Lord, though Your Word commands me to love You with all my being, You know the propensity of my heart is to leave You out of my life. In Your mercy, write Your Law upon my heart. Turn me to Jesus, the One whom the Law directs me to worship. Pour out Your Holy Spirit upon me so that I may be inclined to keep it and reflect You​r holy character all the days of my life. Through Jesus Christ, Amen.
