Question 115

Why will God then have the ten commandments so strictly preached, since no man in this life can keep them?

First, that all our lifetime we may learn more and more to know340340    Rom. 3:20; 1 John 1:9; Ps. 32:5. our sinful nature, and thus become the more earnest in seeking the remission of sin, and righteousness in Christ;341341    Matt. 5:6; Rom. 7:24, 25. likewise, that we constantly endeavour and pray to God for the grace of the Holy Spirit, that we may become more and more conformable to the image of God, till we arrive at the perfection proposed to us, in a life to come.342342    1 Cor. 9:24; Philip. 3:11–14.
