June 3, 2018 Preacher: Larry Malament Series: Exodus

Scripture: Exodus 20:3–3

Sermon Quotes:

Ezekiel 20:7-8 – “And I said to them, cast away the detestable things your eyes feast on, every one of you, and do not defile yourselves with the idols of Egypt; I am the Lord your God. But they rebelled against me and were not willing to listen to me. None of them cast away the detestable things their eyes feasted on, nor did they forsake the idols of Egypt.” 

Patrick Enns: “The first commandment gets to the heart of what it means to be God’s people, not only in terms of what the Israelites have left, but also in terms of where they are going – to another polytheistic land – Canaan.” 

"Jonah 2:8 gives a chilling warning about serving idols – 'Those who pay regard to vain idols forsake their hope of steadfast love.'”

Ross Blackburn:“The unmistakable point is that the Lord’s jealous exclusivity is rooted in love, a love we understand as entirely appropriate between a husband and a wife.”
