The Ten Commandments – Part 4 (Discipleship Training)
The Ten Commandments – Part 4: As we continue our study of God’s law, we have been working through the summary of the law given in the Ten Commandments. We have studied the first three commandments, and then the middle two commandments.
In this study, we will look at the rest of the second table of the law. In the Sixth through Tenth Commandments, God teaches us how we must love our neighbor as ourselves.
The Sixth, Seventh, Eighth, Ninth, and Tenth Commandments teach us how to love our neighbor as ourselves.
Read and discuss:
- Exodus 20:13–17: The Sixth through Tenth Commandments
- Matthew 5:21–26: Jesus’ teaching on the Sixth Commandment
- Matthew 5:27–32: Jesus’ teaching on the Seventh Commandment
- Ephesians 4:28: The positive requirement of the Eighth Commandment
- Ephesians 4:25: The positive requirement of the Ninth Commandment
- Ephesians 5:5: Covetousness (Tenth Commandment) is idolatry
Read and discuss:
- What does the Sixth Commandment require beyond refraining from outright murder?
- What does the Seventh Commandment require beyond physical adultery?
- What does the Eighth Commandment require positively, beyond refraining from stealing?
- What does the Ninth Commandment require positively, beyond refraining from lying?
- How does the Tenth Commandment demonstrate that the law is spiritual, requiring not only outward conformity to the law, but inward transformation as well? How is it possible to grow in keeping the Tenth Commandment?
- Memorize the Ten Commandments.
- Consider not only your outward actions, but the condition, thoughts, and desires of your heart. Where do you fall short of keeping the Second Table of the Law?
- Wherever you do fall short, confess your sins, repent from them, ask for God’s forgiveness through Christ, and pray that God would transform you inside-out by the work of his Holy Spirit.
