New from the Best-Selling Author of Women of the Word.
In Ten Words to Live By, Jen Wilkin reminds readers of the life-giving power of God’s perfect law for the believer. The Ten Commandments are words God spoke to a nation recently set free. They are words about obedience and holiness—timeless in their importance and wisdom. Yet today these same words are often misunderstood, forgotten, or simply ignored.
Wilkin teaches readers how the Ten Commandments come to bear on their lives today, helping them to love God and others, live in joyful freedom, and long for that future day when God will be rightly worshiped for eternity. Ancient and timeless, these words cannot be overlooked. They serve as the rightful delight and daily meditation of those who call on the name of the Lord.

“Lust itself is an act of contempt, reducing someone to a source of sexual gratification and nothing more. If the sixth command prohibited regarding our neighbor as expendable, the seventh prohibits regarding our neighbor as consumable.” (Page 102)
“To both single and married followers of Christ, keep your eye healthy. It hurts to look. But remember never to police your eye or your hand to the neglect of your heart. By all means, don’t commit acts that spring from lust. But put to death lust, not merely its fruit.” (Page 108)
“We must see ourselves rightly, but we must also see our neighbor rightly, unclouded by disordered desire. If we were to look at one another with the lingering gaze that sees what God sees, what would we behold?” (Page 107)
“Rather than seeing the sin of lawlessness as the barrier to relationship with God, we have steadily grown to regard the law itself as the barrier. We have come to believe that rules prevent relationship.” (Page 13)
“It is a word picture to illustrate both the permanence and the interconnectedness of the marriage relationship. The seventh word forbids adultery as the blatant dismantling of what God has joined.” (Page 100)
