We tend to think of the commandments as a list of don’ts. But every commandment is both positive and negative. Each commandment forbids something (a negative) and requires something (a positive). Keep this in mind as we look at the last three commandments.
The law—as far as the individual is concerned—was never meant to make one righteous. It was given to show us that we could never be righteous in our own ability or works. The law shuts our mouth but opens our eyes.
- It condemns but does not convert
- It challenges but does not change
- It points the finger, but it does not give mercy
- It leaves us without excuse, but it drives us to Jesus
