- Tell about when you learned the Ten Commandments. If you did not learn them yet, what do you know about the story of Moses going up Mount Sinai?
- Why did God give Moses the law?
- How would you define "grace" and "gospel?"
Reading: Leviticus 19: 11-17
You may have heard in church the phrase "law and gospel." It describes two distinct ways God related to God's people. In the Old Testament, God gave many laws to obey. Some were very strict and specific. The people of those days tried their best to adhere to the many laws that God had given them.
But when Jesus Christ came to earth and died for our sins in the New Testament, we were no longer bound by the law. We only have to believe and follow Him. What great news! Keep that in mind when you read the laws of the Old Testament. --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
Closing: Try to list the Ten Commandments, in order. Check your Bible to see how you've done.
