The Fifth Commandment: Honor Your Father and Mother

undefined

Speaker: JD Summers | Date: April 25, 2021 | Text: Exodus 20:12

Sermon Summary

As God moves from commands focusing on our relationship with Him to commands focusing on our relationship with other people, he leads off with a command about parents. Children in the home are called to obey and respect their parents' God given authority. Grown children are called to honor, love, and care for their parents at any age. And parents are called to love and nurture their children in a way that points them to Christ. Let us honor God by honoring our parents!

The Fourth Commandment: Honor the Sabbath

Speaker: JD Summers | Date: April 18, 2021 | Text: Exodus 20:8-11

Sermon Summary

God's instruction about the Sabbath is one of the most misunderstood of the 10 Commandments. While the Church, under a different covenant, relates differently to the Sabbath regulations than the nation of Israel did, the Sabbath is eternally important to believers today. As we consider God's rest in creation and the rest he enjoyed and secured for the Church by his work on the cross, we should be moved to rest ourselves, and to worship our Savior.

The Third Commandment: Honor His Name

undefined

Speaker: JD Summers | Date: April 11, 2021 | Text: Exodus 20:7

Sermon Summary

God's name is important because it speaks to who He is, His essence. Misusing his name misrepresents and scorns his holy, worthy character. We must pay close attention to our words, and thus to our hearts, for it is out of the overflow of our hearts that our mouths speak. As we consider the Third Commandment, let us bring our lives under the sovereignty of God, align our conduct to follow his commands and represent him accurately, and ultimately look to Jesus, who did truly proclaim God's Name rightly in his life, and whose blood covers the guilt we deserve to bear.
