1. You Shall Have No Other Gods Before Me. Scripture tells us that we are to have no other gods before the One True God, who is the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob (Exodus 4:5; 6:3; Matthew 22:32). We are also to love God with all our heart, mind, soul and strength (Deuteronomy 6:4,5; Mark 12:30). Have you always placed God first in everything that you have done? Or have other things or persons taken precedent in your life ahead of your Creator God? Has your money, material possessions, hobbies, sports, family members and the like taken first place in your life ahead of your love, or lack of love, for God Almighty?
3. You Shall Not Take The Name Of The Lord Your God In Vain. The Name of God and His Son Jesus Christ are to be reverenced and be worshipped. However, many times the Holy Names of the Father and His Son are blasphemed, used flippantly and substituted for four-letter swear words as they are dragged through the mud! Hollywood uses the Holy Names of God as cuss words and used mockingly in their films and very often misrepresented. Blaspheming God is also when a person who professes to be Christian does not bring forth the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22,23) and their lifestyle is contrary to their “faith”. They call themselves children of God, but live like the devil. This gives occasion to the enemies of God to blaspheme Him (2 Samuel 12:14).
