Introduction: Ill. Ted Turner has proclaimed the Ten Commandments out of date, "We're living with obsolete principles. The guidelines we're living under are the Ten Commandments, and I bet no one here even gives a lot of consideration to them since they're excessively old. At the point when Moses went up on the mountain, there were no atomic weapons, there was no neediness. Today, the Ten Commandments wouldn't go over. No one around prefers to be instructed. Charges are out!"
Turner isn't right when he proclaims that the Ten Commandments are obsolete. As we will see in impending messages, they are as new as could be expected. He was correct, notwithstanding, when he says that no one gets a kick out of the chance to be told. Indeed, current culture ridicules reality and commends the falsehood. We live in when right is named off-base and off-base as right. (Sick. Isa. 5:20) Today, in America, many accept that there are no "ethical absolutes." Many hold to a way of thinking of "moral relativism." what number occasions have we heard articulations like these: "What's ideal for you may not be ideal for me."; "On the off chance that it feels great do it."; "Anything goes."; " Nothing is correct or wrong, there are simply various assessments?" All of this is the consequence of the inclination that there is no unadulterated fact of the matter. You are qualified for your reality and I am qualified for mine! A new survey tracked down that 67% of Americans don't trust in upright absolutes. Among "Child Busters", those brought into the world somewhere in the range of 1965 and 1983, the rate was much higher at 78%. Indeed, even 62% of declaring Christians said that there was no supreme norm of good and bad. My, how America has fallen! This country was established on scriptural standards of good and bad. Today, that establishment is disintegrating underneath our feet! James Madison, the fourth President of the United States said this, "We stake the fate of this country on our capacity to administer ourselves under the standards of the Ten Commandments." This evening, we start a progression of messages on the Ten Commandments. My point is to show you their importance for our day. This evening, I desire to establish a framework for the future messages by disclosing to you a tad bit of the foundation of the Ten Commandments and why they were given. How about we investigate these antiquated Laws and see that they are a down to earth standard for life for present day man. I. THE REASONS FOR THE LAW A. For what reason did God give the Law? To save delinquents? No! Israel was at that point in a contract relationship with God, Gen. 15. The Law can't save – Gal. 3:11; Rom. 3:20. The reasons why God gave Israel the Law are as per the following: 1 To uncover His magnificence and Holiness – Deut. 5:22-28 2. To uncover man's corruption – Rom. 7:7, 13; 1 Tim. 1:9; James 1:22-25. 3. To check Israel as His picked and to isolate them from the rapscallion – Psa. 147:19-20; Eph. 2:11-17; Acts 15. 4. To give Israel a norm for faithful living – Deut. 4:1ff; 5:29ff. 5. To plan Israel for the happening to Christ – Gal. 5:24. 6. To represent in type and function the Person and service of Christ – Heb. 10:1. C. The Law is: 1. A Mirror – James 1:22-25 – It uncovers man's transgressions. 2. A Yoke – It brings subjugation since the tissue thinks that it is difficult to keep – Acts 15:10; Gal. 5:1; Rom. 8:3. 3. A Schoolmaster – Points men to Jesus – Gal. 3:23-4:7. 4. A Shadow – Contrasted with the truth and satisfaction found in Jesus – Heb. 10:1; Col. 2:14-17. D. The Law couldn't get certain things done: 1. Make anybody awesome – Heb. 7:11-19; 10:1-2. 2. Legitimize from wrongdoing – Acts 13:38-39; Rom. 3:20-28. 3. Give honesty – Gal. 2:21. 4. Give harmony – Heb. 9:9. 5. Give life – Gal. 3:21. E. The Law was just a rule for living that had no saving force. (Sick. Numerous in our day want the subjugation of the Law over the opportunity found in Jesus.) II. THE RANSOM FROM THE LAW A. The Law denounced and offered no expectation, Jesus came to satisfy the Law and set us liberated from its subjugation. B. In His life and passing, Jesus did all that was important to liberate us. 1. He satisfied the Law – Ill. Lady. 4:4. Jesus impeccably kept the Law and satisfied every one of the sorts of Leviticus and Numbers. He turned into our Passover Lamb and our Scapegoat, perpetually removing the requests of the Law upon our lives. The Law was never given to make us honest. It was given to show us that in ourselves and in our own works, we would never want to keep the Law. The Law opens our eyes with the goal that we will see our requirement for Jesus – Gal. 3:24. 2. Jesus met every one of the honorable prerequisites of the Law – Ill. Col. 2:13-14. Jesus' passing fulfilled God's prerequisites for wrongdoing and for acquiescence to the Law. At the point when we are in Him, we are not compelled to submit to the Law, we are constrained to submit to it out of adoration for Himself as well as His incredible penance for our wrongdoings. In Him, we move under effortlessness, not the whip of the Law – Rom. 6:14-15; Gal. 5:18. 3. At the point when we get Christ as Savior, He composes the Law in our souls – Jer. 31:33; Rom. 2:15 III. THE RELEVANCE OF THE LAW A. In view of this, a few Christians may be inclined to believe that the Law accordingly no affects us today. That there is no justification us to try and ponder the Law or the Ten Commandments. That is a bogus presumption! At the point when we arrive at where we need no rules, then, at that point we have entered wilderness and we are in a tough situation and in transgression. B. Sick. Matt. 5:17-18. Jesus didn't come to abrogate or to get rid of the Law or Ten Commandments. He came to satisfy them. (Sick. Satisfy – "To do, to make full, to get to the core of.") When we are in Christ, the Ten Commandments become more applicable than any other time in recent memory. C. Sick. Matt. 22:35-40 – Jesus summarized all the Law of God into two rules. On the off chance that I love God as I ought to, I will consistently keep Commandments 1-4. In the event that I love my neighbor as I ought to, I will consistently keep Commandments 5-10. Augustine put it thusly, "Love God and do however you see fit." works, since when you love God, you will consistently look to do those things that please Him! D. The Commandments don't remain as rungs on a stepping stool to move for salvation. They remain as obstructions raised by God to assist us with carrying on with experiences that celebrate His Name. They are applicable today! (Sick. Ted Koppel of Nightline said, "Our general public sees truth as too solid a medication to process undiluted. What Moses brought down from Mt. Sinai were not the "10 Suggestions." They are Commandments.. Are, not were! The sheer brightness of the Ten Commandments is that the classify in a small bunch of words OK human conduct , for then, at that point and presently, yet forever." I say, "So be it!" Conc: Can we save these guidelines forever? Not in ourselves, but rather it is conceivable in Jesus – Phil. 4:13. The Reason? We work with an alternate rationale and force as professors in Jesus. Unreasonably many have attempted to keep the 10 Commandments from an external perspective in. They have attempted to do great to change their heart. As Christians, we come at the things from the other way. Since our souls have been transformed, we can experience the Ten Commandments from the back to front and it turns out great! Indeed, they are pertinent! Furthermore, we will consider that to be this series unfurls. Is it true that you are saved? Or then again, would you say you are attempting to please God by keeping some rundown of do's and don'ts? In case you are attempting to acceptable your approach to God, let me disclose to you it won't work! The best way to satisfy God is to come to Him through His Son, the Lord Jesus. Get Him with a supernatural conviction and afterward He will enable you to carry on with the sort of daily routine you are neglecting to experience at this moment.
