After 400 years of slavery in Egypt, God brought His people out and gave them a standard for living as His chosen people. We call these laws the 10 Commandments. Today, there is some controversy about whether or not the 10 Commandments are relevant. Paul tells us that "All scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness" (2 Timothy 3:16 ESV). This is true of the 10 Commandments.
The 10 Commandments show us where we fall short of God’s standard for holiness and drive us to repentance. They also serve as a quick code of conduct on how we should live our lives each day.
Because of this, knowing the 10 Commandments can help as you share God’s standard and His plan for salvation with others. Intimidated? Don’t be! Renowned speaker and author, Jack Lannom, explains how we can visualize the 10 Commandments in order to remember them.
