This week at River City Reformed, we turn to what we often refer to as the second table of the law. The first table, or the first four commandments had to do with our relationship to God, and commandments 5-10 have to do with our relationship to our neighbor. Exodus 20:12 says, “‘Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the LORD your God is giving you.”
This commandment, serving as the first of the second table calls us to honor those in authority over us. This has to do directly with our parents, our father and mother, but it also has to do with all manner of authority. This command also has something to say to those in positions of authority. This week, we will discuss the scope of this commandment and how it applies to our lives as Christians. We will also think through the promise attached to the command and the Gospel hope for us in the midst of our failures to keep this commandment. We hope that you can join us for worship at 9 AM at 9820 W Markham St. (the sanctuary of Faith United Methodist Church). For more information, click here, or contact us.
