On one occasion, when Mark Twain was visiting in Boston, he met a friend who announced, “Before I die I’m going to the Holy Land, climb Mt. Sinai and read the Ten Commandments. Won’t that be wonderful?” “’l’ll tell you what would be more wonderful,” Twain replied, “Stay in Boston and keep them.” Truthfully, there has never been anyone, but our Lord, who kept the Ten Commandments. None of us can keep them and God knew we couldn’t. They reveal God’s character, furnish a general pattern for godly living, and reveal our sinful condition. Paul told the Romans, “…as by one man’s disobedience, many were made sinners, (Adam) so also by one Man’s obedience, (Christ) many will be made righteous.” He further explained “… the law was our tutor, to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith.” Christ perfectly fulfilled the Law for us.
