Putting God First

“Putting God First”
Rev. Benjamin Wines
(Third Sunday in Lent)
Exodus 20:1-17

We look forward to joining you in Worship this Sunday, starting at 11:00AM in the Sanctuary. You can also find our services online at the HVBC YouTube Channel. Today’s sermon is titled, “Putting God First“. We will be reading from Exodus 20:1-17, and our Call to Worship comes from Psalm 19.

Call to Worship Psalm 19:7-10, 14
The law of the Lord is perfect,
Reviving the soul;
The decrees of the Lord are sure,
Making wise the simple;
The precepts of the Lord are right,
Rejoicing the heart;
The commandment of the Lord is clear,
Enlightening the eyes;
The fear of the Lord is pure,
Enduring forever;
The ordinances of the Lord are true
And righteous altogether.
More to be desired are they than gold,
Even much fine gold;
Sweeter also than honey,
And drippings of the honeycomb.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
Be acceptable to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.

Questions for Further Reflection:

So often we think of the Ten Commandments as “God’s Top Ten Rules”.

  • What if they are more than that?
  • How can they foster community among God’s people?
