Thursday, February 26, 2009 - Lent is a time of Cleansing – Exodus 20:1-17

Have you ever tried to do well all by yourself? Is it hard? God knows that we as sinners would struggle with daily activities. Remember god will always be there to help us. When we are tempted to do wrong, we must remind ourselves to do good instead. The ten Commandments are the basic law for us as Christians. They remind us of our daily wrong doings and show us that we are always in need of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Heaven is the glory land we all hope to someday witness. Following the Ten Commandments without a single mistake is impossible but that doesn’t mean that Heaven is impossible. With the Ten Commandments reminding us of our Savior, we shall love each other and let the Law and Gospel guide our lives. Because of Christ’s death and resurrection the free gift of eternal life is possible.

Dear Lord, I want to thank You for Your only begotten Son whom You sent to live the Ten Commandments perfectly for me. Let us follow in His footsteps in Your name we pray.
