O Living God, do not be anything else to us but who You really are.

Oh Jealous God, do not let us box you in. 

Reveal Yourself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 

Help us to live in Your steadfast love. 

In Jesus Name, Amen

The Lord’s Prayer  (Click link to listen then close song page to return)

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread.  And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.

Our Heavenly Father, forgive us for sinning and failing to show Your love to our hurting world. 

Send us out to our neighbors with the Love of Jesus in our hearts. 

As we have been forgiven, teach us to extend the same grace and mercy towards all we encounter. 

May we carry the Hope of Jesus into a world that is desperate for true Love and Life! 

In the precious Name of Jesus! Amen.

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost!  As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be!

SCRIPTURE~    Exodus 20:1-17   New American Standard Bible (NASB)

The Ten Commandments

20 Then God spoke all these words, saying,

2 “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.

3 “You shall have no other gods before Me.

4 “You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth. 

5 You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the Lord your God,

am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the

third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me, 

6 but showing lovingkindness to thousands, to those who love Me and

keep My commandments.

7 “You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord 

will not leave him unpunished who takes His name in vain.

8 “Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. 

9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 

10 but the seventh day is a sabbath of the Lord your God; in it you shall not

do any work, you or your son or your daughter, your male or your female

servant or your cattle or your sojourner who stays with you. 

11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea and

all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day; therefore the Lord blessed

the sabbath day and made it holy.

12 “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be prolonged in the land which the Lord your God gives you.

13 “You shall not murder.

14 “You shall not commit adultery.

15 “You shall not steal.

16 “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

17 “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife or his male servant or his female servant or his ox or his donkey or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”
