How many do you think you have followed till today.....gladly, I mean??? Its really not being boastful but I WOULD JUST LIKE TO KNOW....... if we even realise what they mean in our lives.

Christians are not sinless people but they are people who know what is right and what is wrong in the sight of God and hence they strive for righteousness to please the Lord and hence although they sometimes sin as they are still human.. they sin less and they do not dwell in it. As for me I have so far successfully been taking care of my actions, words and thoughts to avoid sinning although there are times I would still falter, but so far my everyday goal is to please the Lord and hence I am very careful my life. Regarding the 10 Commandments in the Old Testament, I would like to tell you that those commandments have been rolled into 2 new Commandments given by the Lord Jesus in the New Testament (Matthew 22: 37-39) - And Jesus answererd, "Love God with all your heart, and with all your soul and with all your mind, this is the first and greatest commmandment and the second is "Love your neighbor as yourself." These two new commandments does not change nor nullify the first 10 commandments given in the old testament but rather rather even made it easier for us to follow the entire 10 because if we follow the 2 new commandments by heart, we will not commit any of the sins stated in the 10 Commandments. As for me, as a Christian, I strive daily to put in my heart the 2 new Commandments given and I could claim that although there are sins like petty misunderstand with people around you and being able to speak unpleasant words sometimes, or some white lies that though white are still lies and unacceptable to God I have not so far done other sins as adultery, murder, robbery, covetousness
