The Ten Commandments In Exodus

Good Essays
In Exodus, God commands us to use the Ten Commandments. We are to use the commandments in our everyday lives; to live like Jesus did on earth. The Ten Commandments are not the only thing that leads us to a godly life. We must obey God’s word with the Ten Commandments, but we must also do spiritual acts that reflect our faith in God. As a church and as an individual, God expects us to use these sacraments as another way to live a life like Jesus. Three things that define a sacrament, according to scripture, are the commands, the meaning behind the act of a sacrament, and the reflection while doing the sacrament. First, God commands us to follow the sacraments with scripture. God commands us to use his scripture as a symbol. For example, in Luke 22:19 it states, “And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, This is my body which is given for you; do this in …show more content…
When we are practicing a certain sacrament we are reflecting. Whether in prayer or silence, we should use this time to reflect upon the true meaning of a sacrament. For illustration, we pray before taking communion because we need to confess our unconfessed sins before God. If we do not confess our sins we are disobeying God and not doing what he commands in the act of this sacrament. 1 John 1:9 states, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us of our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” We need to reflect on what we have done and pour our hearts out to God as he commands us to do. In conclusion, as a follower of God, we need to use these sacraments as another way to live like Jesus did when he was on earth. Three things that define a sacrament according to scripture are the commands he uses in scripture, the meaning behind the act of a sacrament, and last the reflection during the act of a sacrament. As, Christians we must use these three things as a way to reflect our faith in

    The people can not bear the fruit of Christ if Christ does not have followers who want to plant the seeds. The Lord, our savior, delivered us from the darkness of sin into the light and, we need to give thanks to the Father for His love. Christ is the son of God and in Colossians, He is declared to be "before all things, and in him all things hold together." He is the reason our evil deeds are reconciled and, the reason we are given the chance of eternal life. The least we can do for Christ is to be stable and steadfast in our faith.…

When we understand the righteousness of Christ we can dwell on it when the evil one comes to attack us. Holiness does not cling to a list of do’s and don’ts, but is firm mostly on don’ts. Christ’s holiness was not just the absence of actual sin, but a perfect conformity to the will of His Father.…
