Why Are the Ten Commandments Important?

“And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.”

Deuteronomy 6:6-9

God's Ten Commandments Will Strengthen Your Family

While the Ten Commandments have been removed from the walls of public institutions, God’s laws still apply. His laws are especially important for families. In fact, Pastor Adrian Rogers reminds us that the Ten Commandments were originally given to the home.

Only Jesus kept those commandments perfectly. If we could keep them perfectly, we wouldn’t need saving. But if Christian families would teach the Ten Commandments to their children and, with the help of the Holy Spirit, do their best to abide by them in their homes, those families would be strengthened immeasurably. Rather than blending in with the rest of society, they would shine an irresistible light in our culture.
