Read Exodus 20:1-20

  • How do you feel about rules? Are there rules today that you particularly like or don’t like?
  • God begins (v2) with a reminder of what he’s done. He hasn’t brought us out of Egypt, but he has freed us from slavery to sin. What difference should this make to the way we then respond to the commands that follow?
  • ‘You shall have no gods before me’ (v3). What do you think are the most common gods to put before God in today’s society?
  • Go through each of the 10 commandments. For each one…
    • How difficult or easy is it to follow today?
    • Find something positive you could do in response to it (eg instead of just ‘Do not murder’… ‘Pray for your enemies’)
  • You could spend time this week praying about these positive responses and consciously trying put some into action.
