10 Laws or 10 Characteristics

Ten“… the laws of GOD are not simply external statutes, published and passed by some congress in heaven; rather, the laws of GOD reflect HIS very character. They are an expression of GOD HIMSELF. So to break any of GOD’s laws is to live against GOD. It is to live contrary to HIM” Mark Dever

I have been reading 9 Marks of a Healthy Church by Mark Dever and he made this statement about the laws of GOD. I got to thinking about this.We know GOD cannot sin. (1 John 3:5) That is because HE cannot go against HIS very character. GOD cannot lie steal murder. Because GOD does not change his character.(1 Samuel 15:29) We however do lie steal covet murder and so on.(Romans 3:10-18) That is why “It is appointed for men to die once, but after this judgement…” (Hebrews 9:27) GOD will judge us by HIS very character known to us as the ten commandments. The punishment for this is Hell. (Revelation 21:8) BUT GOD so love us that he gave us HIS only begotten SON… (John 3:16) The only way to save us or change us was for there to be a sacrifice. That sacrifice was JESUS. HE paid our debt. So because of JESUS we now have a new heart with GOD’s character upon us (Galations 2:20)
