Letting It Slip
by Kathleen Whitten
Darkness continually threatens to overtake God’s people as we navigate through the rough waters of today as well as the unclear paths of the future. But like a lighthouse that shines clarity through the murky fog, the Words of the Lord in Deuteronomy 4 shout clear warning, give us immediate direction, and steadily steer our hearts to the safety of God.
“Do not add to what I command you
“Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely
Warning, Direction, Protection:
Today many hypocritical “religious people” in the church will forget God’s moral law and honor God with their lips but have hearts far from Him. (Mark 7:6)
Jesus explains, ‘They worship Me in vain; their teachings are but rules taught by men. You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to the traditions of men.’ And He said to them: ‘You have a fine way of setting aside the commands of God in order to observe your own traditions!’” (Mark 7:7-9)
What are God’s Commands? God’s Commands are The Ten Commandments along with God’s Moral Laws. They are the “revealed will of God as to human conduct, binding on all men to the end of time.” (NKJV)
The Moral Law (of The Ten Commandments) was given by God to man at Sinai. God’s moral law is perfect, (Psalm 19:7), perpetual (Matthew 5:17,18), holy/just/good (Romans 7:12), and spiritual (Romans 7:14).
What is it that we are not to “let slip”? What are we to teach our children?
