“Pleading the Fifth”
"THE TEN[DER] COMMANDMENTS - Pleading the Fifth" When someone “pleads the fifth,” they are refusing to speak about a particular incident because what they say may wind up being incriminating. In His Sermon on the Mount, Jesus looks at the Fifth Commandment and pleads with us that we follow it not only in our actions, but in our hearts.

    Stop! In the Name of Love
    Stop! In the Name of Love The Hebrew word “Sabbath” means “stop.” God’s desire is that we stop and take time to rest so that we may do the work He has given us. The Sabbath, then, is meant to be a joy, given by God out of love. Yet, in our culture, we all too often neglect this joy for the sake of workaholism. How can we be more intentional about practicing the rest God commands?

    Name Brand
    In the ancient world, someone’s name was also their reputation. God does not want us to take His name in vain because that damages His reputation. Yet, by how we live and by what we do as Christians, we often do besmirch how God wants to be known. Honoring God’s name, then, includes everything we say and do. My Next Step(s): - When I am in a desolate place, I will trust that God has not abandoned me. - I will use the quiet, barren and boring times in my life to move toward God. - I will revere, not misuse, the Name of our immutable, eternal, loving God! - I will honor God’s Name by speaking/sharing it, praying it, and living it. - I will find my identity, meaning and hope in God’s Name placed on me in my baptism.

    One and Only
    One and Only Idolatry is when we take a good thing and turn it into a God thing which is a bad thing. Why is this a bad thing? Because it is an affront to the true God. But Isaiah also reminds us that we desire out of an idol what it can never give: help and fulfillment. Idols always disappoint. God, however, always keeps His promises.

    The Zero-eth Commandment
    THE TEN[DER] COMMANDMENTS: The Zero-eth Commandment Debates have raged between different segments of the Church over how we are to number the Ten Commandments. Some say there are two commandments on idolatry. Others say there are two commandments on coveting. But in Jewish thought, the first commandment is not so much a commandment as it is a declaration: “I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery” (Exodus 20:2). Before God tells His people what they are to do, He reminds them of what He has already done. God’s work, then, is the power behind our works.

    King
    Lead Where You Are: King During this pandemic, leadership is needed now more than ever. No matter who you are, someone is looking to you to help them through. Christ’s ministry consisted of three ways He led us – as a prophet (someone who proclaimed God’s Word), as a priest (someone who sacrificed on our behalf), and as a king (someone who rules according to God’s ways). Christ, in turn, gives to us what He has done. When He sacrificed His very life, God vindicated this sacrifice by giving Him the Name that is above every name. His reputation is spotless, which is why countless millions follow Him. What do our reputations look like? Do our reputations show us to be people who live for My Next Step(s): - I will take 1 Cor. 7:17​ to heart—and lead from the POSITION God has me in now. - I will temper whatever leadership I exert with the PERSPECTIVE that Jesus is Lord. - I will lead in a way that PERSUADES others to live out their God-given purpose. - I will allow God to work in me to will and to act in order to fulfill His PURPOSE in me.

    Lead Where You Are: Priest During this pandemic, leadership is needed now more than ever. No matter who you are, someone is looking to you to help them through. Christ’s ministry consisted of three ways He led us – as a prophet (someone who proclaimed God’s Word), as a priest (someone who sacrificed on our behalf), and as a king (someone who rules according to God’s ways). Christ, in turn, gives to us what He has done. He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to death on a cross. He gave everything. Paul says we are to have this same mindset. Before we can challenge others, we must give to them. What are we willing to sacrifice for the sake of others? My Next Step(s): - I will sacrifice something of privilege that I am able to do, but others aren’t . - I will seek to DO right, rather than be concerned with my own rights. - I will secretly serve for God’s glory, rather than bringing attention to myself. - I will set aside my own desires to help satisfy the desire, or need, of someone else.
