Our Mission: Bringing people of all ages and cultures in Chicago's Northwest suburbs into life-changing faith in the risen Jesus Christ.
This Sunday at Bethel
- 3rd Sunday in Lent, March 8, 2015
Before God gives Moses the Ten Commandments, he reminds Moses of what God has already done for him and for all the people: “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt,
out of the house of slavery; you shall have no other gods before me” (Exodus 20:2).
God ties the commandments directly to God’s act of bringing the people out of slavery. The commandments are not offered as ways to bind the people—just the opposite. They are a guide to freedom.
How do people use their freedom? And how do they remain free? By having no other gods but God, by remembering the Sabbath day, by honoring father and mother, and by not murdering,
stealing, committing adultery, or coveting other people’s things. The commandments may sound like rules to hem us in, but they are really a recipe for the free life.
The adult class “Things Christians Do” continues this week at 8:45 a.m., and we will be reflecting on worship.
See you in church,
