Do the Ten Commandments seem like an archaic list of rules to you? Do you ever wonder why Christians still follow these Old Testament laws, but not others? What makes them different? In this Groundwork series, we’ll take a close look at each of the Ten Commandments as given by God to the Israelites in the book of Exodus. We’ll also examine additional scripture passages in both the Old and New Testaments to help us better understand what the commandments mean, why they still apply to Christians saved by Jesus Christ, and what it looks like to follow these core commandments in today’s world.
What’s one thing we can be sure of in life? That it will change. Whether change is expected or not, it can still be unsettling. It doesn't matter whether the cause of a change is our fault or not, whether a change is good or bad, personal or cultural—it’s normal to feel anxious and uncertain. People in all seasons of their faith journey ask questions of God during times of change. We long to be assured of his presence, to feel peace, to understand what’s happening to us or if God even cares. The good news is that we can turn to God’s Word in these times of uncertainty. The stories of God’s people in scripture are a testimony to God’s constant care and abiding presence. In this Groundwork series, we dig into scripture to uncover the truth of God’s faithful character and find the assurance we need to trust in him and experience his peace through life’s inevitable changes.
