#180 #thetencommandments provide the basis for a moral code. It is easy to think of moral code, and law which later developed, as a set of rules which you must keep…and which failing to will result in punishment. It is more than that though. Moral code and law is life-giving for all who abide by it, and it brings great freedom. That freedom is lost when the code is broken. God loves us so much, He wants us to live in the true freedom which He designed for us. “Teach me, O Lord, the way of your statutes and I shall keep it to the end.” #psalm119 (at Ripon College Cuddesdon)
