The Ten Commandments for Today (Exodus 20)

The Sin No One Will Admit

Exodus 20:17 – August 16, 1992

We begin the final message in this series with the text of the Tenth Commandment: “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.” The key word “covet” is repeated, emphasizing its importance. That […]

Truth or Consequences

Exodus 20:16 – July 26, 1992

When I was growing up my mother had a little rhyme she often repeated to her four sons. You probably heard it many times while you were growing up: Sticks and stones may break my bones But words will never hurt me. As much as I hate to admit it, my mother (who wasn’t wrong […]

Stop, Thief!

Exodus 20:15 – July 19, 1992

Although it is not a matter of any particular importance, this is not the first time I have preached on the Ten Commandments. About 12 years ago I preached through the Ten Commandments at the church I pastored in Downey, California. After I finished that series of messages, I put my sermon notes in a […]

Adultery in My Heart

Exodus 20:14 – July 12, 1992

This is easily the most difficult sermon to preach in this series. It is also the hardest Commandment to deal with fairly. Perhaps I can illustrate. A few years ago a writer introduced a chapter entitled “The Devil and Sex” with these words: “To the adolescents among my readers who have turned to this chapter […]

Murder in My Mouth

Exodus 20:13 – July 5, 1992

They had only been married 11 days when she had him killed. It all started when Louie Weber met Eva Garcia. Louie was 41 and she was 17 and a senior in high school. A romance blossomed and they were married in November 1988. Six days after getting married Eva learned that she had won […]

Forever Children

Exodus 20:12 – June 28, 1992

We have two problems with this Commandment, and perhaps a third: 1. Many of us have negative memories associated with this Commandment. 2. It seems to be meant mostly for children. 3. It seems to describe a family situation many of us never experienced. The last one is the kicker. How do you obey this […]

Take Time for God

Exodus 20:8-11 – June 21, 1992

Let’s begin with three observations on the Fourth Commandment: 1. This is the longest of the Ten Commandments. 2. It is also the most difficult to properly interpret. 3. The Fourth Commandment remains a source of perennial interest. On that last point I call your attention to a survey conducted by Christianity Today in 1988 […]

Taking God Seriously

Exodus 20:7 – June 14, 1992

Every Commandment has its problems. Some are difficult to understand, others are difficult to interpret, and some are difficult to apply. The Third Commandment presents us with a unique problem: We understand it all too well. We think this is the commandment against swearing. We tend to think that it’s a warning against using words […]

No Graven Images

Exodus 20:4-6 – June 7, 1992

“Idols? You must be kidding.” “That’s what they have in Africa, right?” “Me? An idol-worshiper? What do you take me for? A pagan?” “The only thing I worship is my brand-new car.” What is an idol anyway? The dictionary offers this definition: “an image used as an object of worship.” That sounds like those pictures […]

No Other Gods

Exodus 20:3 – May 31, 1992

We live in strange times, don’t we? A recent Gallup Poll revealed that 84% of Americans believe that the Ten Commandments are a valid guide to life. That’s encouraging until you realize that another survey revealed that only 30% of those polled could name even 3 of the Commandments. So before we go any further, […]
