This Sunday we’re past the half way mark in our journey through the Ten Commandments, reaching commandment six, “You shall not murder.” Surely, who could object to such a commandment? Even the ethics of most atheists would heartily agree, murder is not morally permissible.
But it seems, the command is not quite as simple or straight forward as it appears. Everyone would not necessarily agree to the full moral implications of the sixth commandment. Jesus, the Apostle Paul and the Bible reveal that this command has practical implications far beyond murder as we think of it. The main point of the passage is that God wants every human life to matter to you. And this Sunday, we’ll look at four or five of the best reasons why. They are compelling, convicting and life changing.
