The Tenth Commandment: You Shall Not Covet
1. The tenth command is a comprehensive command that deals with the internal conflict in our souls between self-interest and the central reality of God in our lives.
2. This conflict is clearly seen throughout the Bible (Genesis 3:1-6; I Kings 21:1-16: 2 Samuel 11-12; Luke 18:18-23: Romans 7:7-8: Colossians 3:5).
3. Jesus Christ is God's gracious provision for keeping the Ten Commandments (Jeremiah 31: 31, 33; Ezekiel 36: 26-28).
