Every game has rules that denote the boundaries of appropriate play and ensure equitable competition. Without rules there would be no order, and the game would descend into crisis. Do you recognize the moral law, God’s transcendent standards for human behavior? The first commandment directs our attention upward to our Heavenly Father. We are to give thanks to Him as our life giver and sustainer. He is the source of all creation and we are commanded to recognize this truth and worship Him accordingly. It is His rules that should guide our entire life, still we obstinately rebel. Thankfully God the Father gave us the law, and Jesus Christ lived it out by righteously offering Himself up in order to earn our amnesty.
“He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him 2 Cor 5:21 .
