What does God require of us in the Third Commandment?

Share |

God requires that we hold His Word sacred, glady hear it and live in accordance with it all the days of our lives.

John 17:17: Sanctify them through Thy truth; Thy Word is truth.

Luther: “At whatever hour, then, God’s Word is taught, preached, heard, read or meditated upon, there the person, day and work are sanctified thereby, not because of the external work, but because of the Word, which makes saints of us all...Where this is done, this commandment is in force and being fulfilled.”
