How to Build a Life: Take Time to be Holy

When in Doubt, Follow the Instructions.

God’s Commands are Blueprints for Building Our Lives.

Commandment #1: Put God First (Exodus 20:1-3)

Commandment #2: Accept No Substitutes (Exodus 20:4-6)

Commandment #3: Give God the Respect Due Him (Exodus 20:7)

Condemns Profane Oaths, Language, Lives

Commandment #4: Take Time to be Holy (Exodus 20:8-11)

Must Christians Keep the Sabbath?

  1. Jesus is Lord of the Sabbath (Mark 2:22-28).
  2. Jesus has Abolished Sabbath Observance (Colossians 2:13-17).
  3. Jesus is the Fulfillment of the Sabbath (Colossians 2:16-17; Hebrews 4:1-16).

Christians Worship God on Sunday!

  1. Sunday is the Day Jesus Came out of the Grave (Mark 16:1-7).
  2. Sunday is Called “The Lord’s Day” (Revelation 1:10).
  3. Sunday is the Day the Early Church Worshiped  (1 Corinthians 16:1; Acts 20:7).

Why then, this Study?

  1. We are Studying the Moral Principles Behind the Ten Commandments.
  2. The Ceremonial Law Surrounding the Commandments was for Israel’s Observance.
  3. While the Ceremonial Application is NOT binding, the Moral Principles ARE binding

This Command Affirms Four Moral Principles

  1. It is an Affirmation of Work.
  2. It is an Affirmation of Rest.
  3. It is an Affirmation of Social Justice.
  4. It is an Affirmation of Worship.

Jesus is the Fulfillment of the Sabbath (Hebrews 4:9-10)

What is Your Work Ethic?

What is Your Rest Ethic?

How do You Treat Your Employees?

Do You Take Time to be Holy?

God’s commands provide a blueprint for how to build successful lives.  We have examined the first three of the Ten Commandments: Put God First, Accept No Substitutes, and Give God the Respect Due Him.  Sunday we will examine the fourth, Take Time to be Holy.

Exodus 20:8-11 Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your manservant or maidservant, nor your animals, nor the alien within your gates.  11 For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

Many see this commandment as not applicable to Christians today.  It is true that this was a part of Israel’s ceremonial law that is not binding on Christians.  However, aside from the ceremonial, there are moral principles that are universally binding.

I will discuss these principles in my lesson.
