#5. Honor Your Elders
The 5th word is the first and only time the term 'honor' appears in the ten commandments, and it's also the first one that comes with a promise. When we truly honor our elders, we assure them they will not be forsaken in their old age.

#4. Imitate My Rest
As God was forming his new community, he foresaw the sinful tendency for people to worship the work of their hands and their own self-sufficiency. So he points them back to His own example of stopping to rest. In this command, God gives dignity and worth to all that He has created. Everyone is worthy of restoration and everyone can imitate their creator.

#3. Honor My Name
Whenever God’s people lost the sense of who they were dealing with, they also lost their moral capacity to obey Him. Our ability to honor God's name goes far deeper than we ever dared imagine.

#2. No Cheap Imitations!
What makes counterfeits so dangerous? Because they masquerade as the real thing. They promise life on the outside but on the inside they are hollow. The second Timeless Word zeros in on the danger of trying to create anything that steals God’s glory or worth, regardless of how good it looks.

#1. Keep an Undivided Heart
God begins these Ten Words by reminding this first generation of free people who He is and what He has done. He promises that doing life together with Him will be all they will ever need in this new land. He is like no other. Because of that, He alone is worthy of worship.

10 Timeless Words: Intro
A new study on the Ten Commandments. We hear warnings of how impossible it is to try and follow the Old Testament law and to beware of the legalism that produces Pharisees. But what did Jesus have to say about these Ten Words given to His descendants?

We are thankful to live in a country that values the pursuit of happiness, but we should also ask the question of what actually brings happiness? According to Psalm 1, attaining God's blessing is something that is attainable but not necessarily by pursuing it.

Where is the Wise Man?
Christmas is more than a Hallmark card. It is the magnificent wisdom of God sneaking into the world as the centerpiece of all of human history. And for those who would believe it is also the turning point of every individual's life.

Vital Signs: Peace
Have you ever found yourself wishing for peace? When you see a broken world and you wish we could live together and appreciate one another’s differences instead of fighting about them? When you are in a family conflict and you wish that people would simply forgive one another and move on? Or maybe when you struggle to find some relief from guilt or shame and you wish you could start over again?

Vital Signs: Joy
While Joy runs deep in the Christmas theme, it is also at this time of the year that depression rises, expectations fluctuate, and tensions run high. We should be happy but we still struggle. Why does joy feel so elusive and so hard to maintain?

Vital Signs: Love
Love has been co-opted by the current culture and transformed to mean whatever feels good or tolerance for anything. As disciples of Christ, we are commanded to love - but what does that look like? How can I truly love my enemy? How can I love my spouse? Is it even love if it comes from a command?

Vital Signs: Hope
Waiting is a part of the human condition. But it’s uncomfortable for us because, if we’re honest, it feels as if we are caught in something beyond our control. We need hope when we are afflicted. We need hope when we don’t see a way forward. We need hope when we feel that we are alone in the waiting. We need an eternal hope.

Vital Signs: Self-Control
The very idea of self-control suggests that there is competition. This world is full of voices that are always competing for our attention, our passions, and ultimately our heart’s allegiance. Who or what will have control of my heart?

Vital Signs: Goodness & Faith
Goodness and Faith are symbiotic twins of the Christian life. They are mutually expressed in the character of God, play off of one another, and elevating each other. Recognizing God’s goodness ignites our faith and leads us to see it in places we may have missed.

Vital Signs: Meekness
Anger is almost seen as a righteous, modern virtue. For the believer, however, Paul describes meekness as a developed virtue that tempers our anger and wrath when we are provoked. It holds our personal response time in check, and it yields to a different perspective and a greater power.

Vital Signs: Forbearance
As we move into the second half of our series, we are going to look at what the fruit of the Spirit looks like when operating within us. What are these vital signs of life? Galatians gives us a very clear picture of what is and is not life-producing.

Vital Signs: Another Gospel?
The word Gospel simply means Good News. But what are some of the lies of the false gospel today? How can we avoid living our life according to the wrong narrative?

Vital Signs: Truth or Trivia?
Our world is awash in an ocean of bits and pieces of disconnected information. News feeds and marketing companies churn out a a 24/7 stream of appeals either to our sense of morality or our sensual desires. Facebook, Instagram and Twitter broadcast endless personal experiences and opinions about food, politics, travel, sexuality and more to hordes of followers. Think about what a diet of this produces in our lives. Would I say that it is getting easier for me to stay focused and be discerning in what really matters? Has my attention span gotten longer? Would people closest to me say that I am present when I am with them? Or how about this vital sign: has my anxiety level gone up or down in the last few years?
