3 Because of his upbringing By his Jewish mother and grandmother. Paul is saying the OT is inspired, profitable and useful, So that we, NT believers, may be trained in righteousness And equipped for every good work. We also shouldn’t be surprised To see Paul enjoining the observance of the Ten Commandments As we saw in our meditation this morning, “Owe nothing to anyone except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled
law. For this, ‘YOU SHALL NOT COMMIT ADULTERY, YOU SHALL NOT MURDER, YOU SHALL NOT STEAL, YOU SHALL NOT COVET,’ and if there is any other commandment, it is summed up in this saying, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.’ Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of
law” (Rom. 13:8-10). The Ten Commandments have always been His standard, And continue to be so today. We don’t keep them to be saved, But having been saved, The Lord would have us to keep them That we might love Him and our neighbor. B. Preview. With that in mind, Let’s continue looking at how He tells us to do this.
