God’s word tells us that sin is lawlessness. Whenever we break God’s Law or do not perfectly keep His commandments, we are sinning. The Bible is clear that all have sinned, and that we all sin every day. The Ten Commandments are a summary of God’s Law that all Christians should strive to keep every day with the help of God’s Spirit. We are no longer under a Covenant of Works, being saved by law-keeping, but instead are under a Covenant of Grace in which Christ has kept the Law for us. Despite this, or rather because of this, God commands us to keep the Law out of gratitude to Him for what He has done for us.
