While Jews and Christians alike have revered the Ten Commandments for millennia, secularists and agnostics have tried to remove them from the public square. Some Christians wonder if they are still relevant in this age of grace, while others approach them as a checklist for earning God’s favor. But what if these ten “words of endearment” from God actually reveal the loving heart of a Father seeking to guide and guard His cherished children?
Bill Coker, Sr. faithfully served as senior pastor of World Gospel Church, Terre Haute, Indiana between 1989 – 2008. In his preaching, Bill emphasized spiritual growth based on a grounded knowledge of biblical truth. As you explore his well-honed insights about each of the Ten Commandments, you will be challenged to:
– View the Decalogue as an expression of God’s loving care vs. His wrath
– Understand the depth and purpose of each commandment
– Relate each commandment to all of the others, as part of a unified whole
– Apply the spirit of each commandment to transform relationships with God and others
Each chapter concludes with thought-provoking questions and practical action steps to help you apply these truths to your daily life as you learn about the Ten Commandments.
These ten “words” are far from a historic code or a legal obligation. They give amazing insight into the heart of God for His people and how to build a life based on His values, character, and goodness.
If you are ready to grow in God’s plan for you, watch for the publication date* and read Words of Endearment: The Ten Commandments as a Revelation of God’s Love. These teachings bring fresh understanding and renewed respect for the awe-inspiring and relevant truth of these ancient words.
