Why 10 Commandments? Our Relationship With Others

The Ten Commandments were given to the Hebrews by God as a guideline for living. These rules were never meant to give the people salvation. The Hebrews were already Godís chosen people. They had already been freed from slavery when Moses led them out of Egypt. Godís people were never justified by what they did. See Romans chapter 4. It is the same for us as New Testament Christians. Righteous standing before God has always been by faith. We are not under the Law for our salvation but we are expected to observe the rules of holy living.

Why Ten Commandments? Our Relationship to Each Other
(Please see ďWhy Ten Commandments? Our Relationship With God for commandments 1 through 4.)
None of us are able to keep the 10 Commandments. They were given to make us aware of our propensity for sin and of our need for a Savior. However, obeying becomes easier as we focus on the gifts we receive by faith in Jesus.
