The Neighbor

Chiseled ThumbWe concluded our series on the Ten Commandments, “Chiseled,” this weekend at Eastbrook Church by looking at the ninth and tenth commandments from Exodus 20:16-17.

Many commentators divide the Ten Commandments into two categories: 1) those dealing more with how we relate to God and 2) those dealing more with how we relate to others. Strictly speaking, the final two commandments are the only ones that mention the word ‘neighbor’, drawing into focus the ways in which we treat those around us.

The outline for the message is below. You can view the message online here or listen to it via our audio podcast here. You can now access all the messages from the “Chiseled” series here. You can also visit Eastbrook Church on VimeoFacebook, Twitter and Instagram.

This series is part three of an occasional series we are doing from Exodus. You can enjoy the first two parts of this extended series on Exodus here:

Murder, Adultery and Theft

Chiseled ThumbI continued our series, “Chiseled,” on the Ten Commandments this weekend at Eastbrook Church by looking at the sixth, seventh and eighth commandments from Exodus 20:13-15.

These are the most brief and bluntly worded commandments of the Decalogue. I brought together Jesus’ parallels to these commandments in the Sermon on the Mount in order to talk about two basic truths:

  1. Our hearts are worse than we think
  2. God’s grace is greater than we understand

Set Apart

Chiseled ThumbThis weekend at Eastbrook Church, I continued our series, “Chiseled,” on the Ten Commandments by looking at the third and fourth commandments from Exodus 20:7-11.

While we may not immediately see a connection between the command about not misusing God’s name and the command about keeping the Sabbath, they have a lot in common. They are both about keeping something as “set apart,” which is a reflection of God being “set apart,” or holy. So, the message was about having set apart words and set apart time.

The Ten

Chiseled ThumbThis weekend at Eastbrook Church, I began our new series on the Ten Commandments entitled “Chiseled.”

The message was really an introduction on how we can see the Ten Commandments as God’s words of life, love, and mission to God’s people. I also spent time reflecting on how we should read the Ten Commandments as followers of Jesus.

Chiseled

Chisled-04

We begin a new series on the Ten Commandments this weekend at Eastbrook Church entitled “Chiseled.”

One of the key identity markers for God’s people is the Ten Commandments. When God called His people out of slavery from Egypt and into a new land of promise, God established a new covenant with them. This covenant was an agreement outlining God’s relationship with the people. It was a covenant of grace characterized by a new way of life as a community and as individuals. While there were many parts of this, the Ten Commandments – or Decalogue, are a good summary of this covenant. In this series, we will continue our exploration of what Exodus means to us as 21st century followers of Jesus. How might we be shaped by the Ten Commandments, and how might they be chiseled upon our hearts, minds and lives?

March 1/2 – “The Ten” -  Exodus 3:19; Matthew 5:17-20

March 8/9 – “The One and Only” (commandments 1-2) - Exodus 20:1-6

March 15/16 – “Set Apart” (commandments 3-4) - Exodus 20:7-11

March 22/23 – “Your Mother and Father” (commandment 5) - Exodus 20:12; Ephesians 6:1-4

March 29/30 – “Murder, Adultery and Theft” (commandments 6-8) - Exodus 20:13-15; Matthew 5:21-30

April 5/6 – Move Mission Festival – Special Speaker: Victor Hashweh 

April 12/13 – “The Neighbor” (commandments 9-10) - Exodus 20:16-17; Mark 12:31
