The Laws of God- The 10 commandments


Will you go to heaven if you don’t follow the laws of God? We all know that we are saved by the grace of God. God loved us so much that he sent his only son to die for all of us. God promises that he is going to prepare a place for us, but the question is will we all be there, or rather exactly how do we get there. Today we are focusing on whether or not we can make it to heaven without following the laws of God, which of course consist of the 10 commandments. 

For those of you that are not aware of the 10 commandments or don’t quite remember what they are or where they are found, I will provide it for you down below:

This is found in Exodus 20 in your bible:


1 And God spoke all these words:

    2 “I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.

    3 “You shall have no other gods before me.

    4 “You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. 5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, 6 but showing love to a thousand {generations} of those who love me and keep my commandments.

    7 “You shall not misuse the name of the LORD your God, for the LORD will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.

    8 “Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. 9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your manservant or maidservant, nor your animals, nor the alien within your gates. 11 For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

    12 “Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.

    13 “You shall not murder.

    14 “You shall not commit adultery.

    15 “You shall not steal.

    16 “You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.

    17 “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”

The point that I am making by asking this question is this, so many of us go about our daily lives not really thinking about the laws that God has asked us to follow but yet we are expecting to be with him in his holy kingdom. If you don’t start following the laws now, then when will you? Tomorrow isn’t promised and God will hold each one of us accountable for our actions.
